Beyond dream's door

Have you ever wondered

If there is more

Than just waking up

Beyond dream's door

Scenes that vivid

A tingle goes down to your core

Wishing to go further

To go beyond dream's door

What is on the other side of sleep?

The veil between dream and reality has tore

Where will your soul wake up?

Is it beyond dream's door?

Do you wish to know?

Have you been there before?

On what side of the door will you stand?

Things to wonder as you approach dream's door

The veil between dream and reality has tore

"Wait, here!"

I love a good horror movie

Sometimes people speak before they think

Especially when chased by a maniac

Words spoke faster than the eye blinks

The 2 dumbest words in the history of horror movies

" Wait, here"

Why would one stop running?

Their brain is not thinking clearly

No desire to get butchered

Being pursued by a lunatic with a machete

Why would one stand still?

As your friend leaves you under a tree

Your "friend" lets you be the decoy

Because losing your life isn't his fear

What's dumber is you listen to him!

When he told you "Wait, here!"

Tomb of Terror

The light is becoming dark

Experiencing the ultimate horror

I'll never escape this vault

In my own tomb of terror

Trying to claw out towards daylight

Please allow this to just be an error

Looking upward and seeing not tombstone

Get me out of this tomb of terror

Soon I'll breath no more

Carrying me are my pallbearers

Being lowered into my grave

Been laid down in my tomb of terror

Watching the midnight sky

Lightning covers the sky

As the high winds take flight

Rain beats the ground

Just after midnight

Thunder rattles my floor

Mother Nature has a nasty bite

The power flashes off and on

Just after midnight

Rain batters my porch

The lightning flashes are bright

Trees swaying

Just after midnight

My frightened cats won't let me sleep

So I decided to write

Laying here with pad, pen, and cats

Just after midnight

Sigh at the well

Grieving as I admit my guilt

Every wrong to God I will tell

Flooding my soul are floods of acquittal

As I sigh at the well

Crying as I apologize

Against you I'll never again rebel

Feeling mercy in my heart

As I sigh at the well

I offer no defense for my actions

Within me His love dwells

He has given me amnesty

As I sigh at the well

Into your ears I offer my confession

You caused my shackles to fall

Overwhelmed by your passion of grace

As I sigh at the well

Terror never rests in peace

Loud is the alarm

My sanity will soon cease

Calmness will vanish

Terror never rests in peace

Panic will creep into the daylight

Horror is built piece by piece

Stillness will be shattered

Terror never rests in peace

Fear covers my body

The scream of silence will increase

Tranquility is an emotion of the past

Terror never rests in peace

The air is thick with fright

Eternal quietness will be released

My soul will never again relax

Terror never rests in peace

Watcher in the woods

I saw the leaves on the trees bustle

Remembering my childhood

Has it returned to claim my life?

The watcher in the woods

I heard a twig snap

This fear followed me into manhood

You wouldn't understand my paranoia

Following me for years has been the watcher in the woods

Did I see that shadow move?

That plant just stood!

Is it sounding too silent?

Following my every step is the watcher in the woods

Should I run or stand still?

Hide or pull up my hood?

Stare or look away?

Do I look at the watcher in the woods?

Remaining silent with shaking fear

Do I try to scare him away with loud words?

Maybe it's just my imagination

Is it the watcher in the woods?

I knew someday he would return

Tracked me into my adulthood

Is there a way to escape it besides death?

The mysterious watcher in the woods

Moonlight Mountain

On a walk before daybreak

Quickly strolling past the scary trail again

Hoping to ignore the visual reminder

Of what happened up on Moonlight Mountain

It was dark on that frightful evening

Fear grabbed ahold of my balmy skin

I got lost in the silent forest

While I was up on Moonlight Mountain

The night sky was clear

On the blank canvas the moon shined

Never suspected what would happen next

At that moment on Moonlight Mountain

Suddenly a flow of pain rushed over me

Couldn't distinguish between animals or men

Something wanted to tear me apart

While I was on Moonlight Mountain

I was about to lose consciousness

Blood shot up like a fountain

My life flashed before my eyes

Thought I would die on Moonlight Mountain

As I laid near death

To the ground my body was pinned

Collapsed with no hope

How did I survive Moonlight Mountain?

Dark Horizon

How does your future look?

What will happen during the upcoming season?

Things looking clear or murky?

As you stare at your dark horizon

Are you dreading the near future?

Facing it alone with no companion

No shoulder to lean on

As you walk to your dark horizon

Your life has not been fair

Wishing to lead a rebellion

Nothing ever goes your way

As you view the oncoming dark horizon

You think nobody has your problems

That is your biased opinion

You are not the only one who struggles

Shivering as you face a dark horizon

Fearful of bumps in life's road

Afraid of being pushed down a canyon

Fill your heart with courage and strength

Then boldly face your dark horizon

Skull City

Be careful that you don't get lost

It would be such a pity

To be bloodied and mangled

Laying in Skull City

Be careful and stay on the main road

Never stand under the big oak tree

Something could jump out at you

If you rest on the way to Skull City

Be prepared for what could appear

May not believe what you see

Anything could and will happen

Before you arrive in Skull City

You will be afraid

Maybe you should turn and flee

Never wish to go that way again

Stay away from the scary place called Skull City
