They send me away to find them a fortune
A chest filled with diamonds and gold
The house was awake, the shadows and monsters, the hallways, they echoed and groaned
I sat alone, in bed till the morning; I'm crying, "They're coming for me"
And I tried to hold these secrets inside me, my mind's like a deadly disease
I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones
And all the kids cried out, "Please stop, you're scaring me"
I can't help this awful energy
