Track Name: Better Way to Die
Night is here, soaked with fear,
Something is near, prowling,
Shambling outside, you gotta hide,
Eyes open wide, it’s howling,
Bar your door, lie down on the floor,
Just like before, trembling,
Kill the lights, stay outta sight,
The evil tonight is rambling

There’s a ragged scarecrow hanging
On the pole in the corn field,
It’s clad in filthy clothes of a man
Who had been killed,
At dusk the scarecrow comes to life
And roams the countryside,
Don’t you try to hunt the thing,
There are better ways to die

The creature calls, claws at the walls,
The terror unfolds, chilling,
Someone cries, caught in the moonlight,
The scarecrow delights in killing,
Glowing eyes, a nasty surprise,
An innocent dies bleeding,
Horrible sounds, blood stains the ground,
The thing’s still around, feeding
Track Name: Sanity's Shards
We are at the door,
You crawl on the floor,
Stand up, let us in,
Let the freakshow begin

We are at the door,
We are men made of straw,
We’re your sanity’s shards,
That’s where all the fun starts

You are lost on the path
In the middle of nowhere,
No colors, no sounds,
That makes it game over

Count the holes in the wall,
Grip your teeth and be strong,
We’ll soon come to play,
When the nurse rings the gong,
In the asylum,
Where you belong,
And you know who we are,
We were you all along
