(Verse)
Darkness ain't the same
It's the visions in your mind
Leave it on the window cell, it's further down we step
Do you think I know your heart?
It wouldn't be a big surprise

(Verse)
Because the pendulum will swing
Whenever night arrives
13 dolls are wandering from grandma's house tonight
And I'll never be around
I'm cursed and I am blessed
It's all that is less

(Pre-Chorus 1)
You would not believe the tales they tell
They're good, they're bad, but hurts like hell
But to those who live the shaded path
They won't betray their wooden mask

(Chorus)
Fight them hard then keep them safe
Those 13 little dolls
One for each mood of the day
Those 13 little dolls
Cross your heart and try to sleep
Leave them out to play
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 little dolls

(Verse)
See I was told a tale
Of witches in a box
Lift the led and spirits rise, I see a veil of force
Now they're here just like a bet
I feel 6 and 20 hours

(Verse)
Because for every twist and turn
Those dogs will catch the mystery
Tell them everything I heard and let it set me free
It's the black magic kind of fun
We're locked until the bitter end

(Pre-Chorus 2)
You would not believe the tales they tell
They're good, they're bad, but hurts like hell
Not apparent to the naked eye
But with the flood it all takes flight

(Chorus)
Fight them hard then keep them safe
Those 13 little dolls
One for each mood of the day
Those 13 little dolls
Cross your heart and try to sleep
Leave them out to play
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 little dolls

(Bridge)
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 13
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 13
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 13
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 13

(Chorus)
Fight them hard then keep them safe
Those 13 little dolls
One for each mood of the day
Those 13 little dolls
Cross your heart and try to sleep
Leave them out to play
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 little dolls
