lyrics

in between the silhouettes, intruder stands
grin of deceit upon his face
what is he doing here? no one invited him
time for him to make his case
he creeps under the canopy
blank stare return
then paranoia takes its turn
(don’t worry kid, don’t worry)

lately moral behavior need not apply
the kid just wants to stay alive
nobody’s watching, nothing to lose
i’ve got all my jewels in the safe but
kid’s just a lightbulb
he don’t know from right or wrong
is he walking in his sleep?
he’s got some demons
nothing to laugh about
wish he could come out of the deep
he don’t know peace

because they’re coming to get me
there’s nowhere to hide
they’re looking for answers
locked up inside

lay awake i shiver
shiver for the day
the day that kid is in the right
“coming to get us”
he screams aloud
throughout the day and through the night
(don’t worry kid, don’t worry)

but he seems mostly harmless, nothing to fear
but there’s this glint in his eye
can’t double-cross him; he might react
but what’s residing in his mind?
kid twists and turns

he knows they’re coming to get me
there’s nowhere to hide
they’re looking for answers
locked up inside

someone’s in the kitchen and he’s dying to feed
suffocating presence makes it harder to breathe
don’t you double-cross him or he’s going to seethe
will somebody stop the intruder intruder intruder
someone’s in the kitchen and he’s eyeing the bed
take a subtle razor to the back of his head
no one’s gonna miss him if he’s already dead
will somebody stop the intruder intruder intruder
