Once Upon a Time

         Once upon a time

     there was a happy ending

          Once upon a time

         things were simple

          This Point in time

           things get twisted

         nights come quicker

         fear becomes thicker

    BANG BANG! The sounds get closer

             Live Life they say

      once upon a time you could

       This point in time you can't 

    They're Coming they're coming! You think

                     No one is safe

                      not of any race

          Once upon a time used to exist

           This point in time it doesn't.
