Madame Macabre – Painted Smile lyrics

I can't even remember how it started.
A nagging voice.
My normal then departed from me.
Primal urges spiriting my sense away,
Foggy glimpses of the boy I used to be.
upon by the lowest of society,
They're parasitic,
Demanding your conformity.
are gonna get real ugly.
through the last shreds of my humanity.

I'm not but a shadow of what I was,
And I'm Hellbent and headed for you.

Surely you've realized that there's no way out of this alive;
your eyes,
'Cause it's time for you to:
To Sleep.

Climbing through your window pane,
I'm creeping closer,
Can you hear me?
Go on, mock me, say I'm insane;
But it's you who's caught in my game.
Cat and mouse,
A lovely circle.
Watch your tongue,
Those words are hurtful.
Hush now, won't you stay a while?
Join me with a painted smile.
