lyrics

Monsters In The Basement Driven

Here I lay alone in the room I call my own
And the freaky being watching from below
Something in my heart tells it to leave me alone
I feel like running as the creature lies and moans

My senses expand to release me from my fear
But the fear itself can be the one that I hold dear

Looking out the window I see something in the trees
A haunting image there that makes me want to freeze
The darkest hour of night awakes me from my sleep
Sitting up I feel the floor it falls so deep

Monsters in the basement I can not grasp my breathe
I try to leap away but fall amongst the depths

Monsters they are getting in my head
Monsters my senses are not dead

A child's mind can only imagine what's under the bed
I see an eye shine reflecting in the mirror
I can't feel my hands my arms to pull me out of here
I wish I could remove the monsters dancing in my head

Monsters...They are getting in my head
Monsters.. My senses are not dead


I close my eyes with any hope the mornings near
I cannot sleep when my mind is so full of fear
Monsters coming closer I try to disappear
I wish someone would remove the monsters that appear

Can't you hear me scream
This is not a dream

Can't you hear me scream
This is not a dream
Monsters are what they seem
Leave this late night dream

Here I lay alone in the dark again

My senses expand to release all my fear
But fear itself I hold dear

The darkest hour of night no sleep
Away I feel alone

I close my eyes will they disappear

A child's mind can create
