lyrics

Oh god
It's so so quiet here
The silence is slipping into my head
When monsters are loud
They're really quite delightful
It's the silent ones that kill you
So please do watch out

We had a monster ball
And they all came out to play
They were dressed to the nines
In their scary monster ways
We had guzzard tea
And lizard skin
And baby legs and rolled around
Merrily and spilled our fluids

God it was so fun!

At the end of the night
We bowed and said "Good Eating!"
And they spilled into the night
Slithering and creeping

I closed my door and hit the lights
And sighed into the frightful night
The chandeliers were creaking
Ah oooh! My little tom's were peeking!

Oh God, what's that?
Could it be my little black cat?
Could it be my shadow playing tricks?
Could it be my flighty candlesticks?

It's time my body go to bed
But who to tend to my dear head?
The night will soothe it's deadly ways
Into the realm of the insane

I lift my covers up
And I close my little eyes
And I listen to the night
With its silent screams and cries

I went to sleep and woke to find
I was being eaten
Which wouldn't be so bad

Except

I never gave permission

Those silent little demons
And their silent little ways
Its the silent ones that kill you
Its the little ones that rage

The big ones will hound you
The loud ones will pound you
But the germs get in you
And eat you inside out

Inside out
Inside out
They'll eat you inside out
Which wouldn't be so bad
Except they eat you Inside out
Inside out
Inside out
They'll eat you inside out
Which wouldn't be so bad
Except they eat you Inside out

Which wouldn't be so bad
Except they don't ask for permission
They just get inside you
And set upon their mission
Or better than that
They'll get into your veins
And seep into your bloodstream
Which causes lots of pain
Or better than that
They'll make you go insane
If the little bugger slimes
Reach into your brain
Or better than that
In your soul they'll lurk
A place to worship
You've become their church

Allellujia (x8)

Inside out
Inside out
They'll eat you inside out
Which wouldn't be so bad
Except they eat you inside out
No it wouldn't be so bad
Except they eat you inside out
Inside out
Inside out
They'll eat you inside out
Which wouldn't be so bad
But then they leave you inside out
Inside out
