I was the boy who said all of my prayers
Laid my clean face on the pillow
Tucked in real tight, so safe and secure
Through the night
I heard a noise, it was probably nothing
It pulled me right out of a dream
If I knew it was you
I'd have jumped out of bed with a scream

I am the one who growls in your closet
I am the one who lives under your bed

Get down - back where you started
Get down - back into hell
Your black soul, you know you're
Black hearted
I smell your sulfurous smell

All of my things that I play with in daylight
You turn into monsters at night
My toys were my friends
Until you taught them all how to bite

You showed me things little boys
Shouldn't see
You scared me with visions of fire
You danced on my bed
With the flames on your head dancing higher

I am the one who growls in your closet
I am the one who lives under your bed

Get down - back where you started
Get down - back into hell
Your black soul, you know you're
Black hearted
I smell your sulfurous smell

I tell ya right now
I don't want your reptile embrace
I don't want to follow you down
To your place
I don't want to be a child of disgrace
You can take your whiskey soaked, foaming
At the mouth, toilet talking, pea soup spewing,
Sweating blood demon breath out of my face

Get down - back where you started
Get down - back into hell
Your black soul, you know you're black hearted
I smell your sulfurous smell

I was the boy who said all of my prayers
Laid my clean face on the pillow
Tucked in real tight, so safe and secure
Through the night
