Come out, come out, wherever you are;
whether you're near – or whether you’re far.
Crawl from the abyss, come into the light;
embrace me, sweet darkness, just hold on real tight..
Come here, come here, I’ll flail in your hands.
They're strong, and rough, like rusted steel bands.
My neck is so perfect, such soft suppleness
is lost on a monster like you, I confess.
Come forth, come forth – let fear flow from me;
I'll scream, you'll beg...whatever will be.
You’ll find where I’m hiding, no matter the place.
I'll laugh while you cry as light fades from my face.
Why me, why us – is that all we can say?
I squint, you smile – my false face ebbs away.
Come out, come out, for eternity.
I see in the mirror the monster is me.
