about

With seven bass tracks, and five guitar tracks, and lyrics that offer a nightmarish view inside the mind of a serial killer, this song came about from watching too many episodes of Criminal Minds.

lyrics

You look through me on the subway
You ignore me in the hall
I don't make a strong impression
If I make one at all.
You told them when they asked you
"He was such a quiet one,
"I can't imagine him doing
"The awful things you say he's done."
But I have secrets deep inside me
No one will ever know
The voices keep on screaming
The compulsion starts to grow.


I know everything about you
I watch you everywhere
I stalk you on the street
You have no suspicion that I'm here
i have your pictures on my wall
Missing clothes and locks of hair
when you feel you're being watched
You won't see me but I'm there.
And when voices say the time is right
Hope's a half-forgotten dream
You'll only know despair
-


When the dance is over
And there's nothing left but tears
A few neglected stains
And the echos of your fear.
When all is said and done
And the toys are put away
You'll be nothing but a memory
They'll think you ran away
I slip into the shadows
No one will ever know
The voices keep on screaming
The compulsion starts to grow.
