lyrics

I am running through my hallway trying to get out
but there are prehistoric rabid monkeys all up in my house
I make it to the back yard and run into the shed
I can't tell if the screams are from outside or in my head

I grab a tiny little shovel prepared to kick and fight
and I feel like this will be the very last I see of light
I close my eyes and try in vain wish away this hell
and resign to the fact that I will die in this cell

The noise, it stopped. there's no more sounds
there is nothing around me for miles around
My arm is broken, and my skin is burnt
I wonder how I got here and got this hurt

I see a black bird circle in the sky
and notice some other scavengers nearby
they're all coming closer now and I can't move
but thanks to God I woke up when they bit through.
That was a nightmare, alright.
