Close Your Eyes

When you look out through the window pane, 

Your deepest fears run through your brain.

Just don't blink your eyes.

 

A demon with a diabolical grin-

The odor of putrescent skin.

Just don't blink your eyes.

 

The spectral ghouls fly their way pass,

Slithering snakes hide in the grass.

Just don't blink your eyes.

 

The demented scarecrow wielding an ax,

A killer covering his tracks.

Just don't blink your eyes.

 

The maniacal cackle of witches in their hats.

The insidious scretch of bats.

Just don't blink your eyes.

 

Decaying hands reach from the grave.

You look away, try to be brave.

Just don't blink your eyes.

 

As you lie shivering beneath your sheets

You hope to get less tricks, more treats.

Try to close your eyes.
