"House of the Rising Dolls"

You don’t belong here

Go on and leave us

You don’t really want to come too near

I’ll make myself clear

Don’t want you near us

Turn around and close the door. Just disappear

We’re all the same here

Here in my doll house

From underneath this veil I peer

We don’t want you here

Think you’re audacious

But you’re so close now that I can sense your fear


Beneath this vale of tears

So close that I can smell your fear


Fight to the death

This your last breath

Feel your last heartbeat

You’ll be down on your knees

Praying that death

Could not come too soon

Flight to the death

Is this my last breath

I feel my last heartbeat

Silence my scream

Praying that death

Could not come too soon
