Mind games

Her heart beats fast

Her heart beats fast, hard

Her heart beats fast, hard, inside her chest.

She's sure the man following her can hear it.

Drumming away

Drumming away threatening to explode.

She can hardly breathe.

Her chest hurts

Her chest hurts her fingers are numb.

He's been hunting her down for hours

He's been hunting her down for hours and hours

He's been hunting her down for hours and hours and hours.

She's tired.

She's tired. She's terrified.

She's exhausted. She's terrified.

She's exhausted. She's paralyzed.

She's fatigued. She's paralyzed.

She's fatigued. She's sure she'll be dead soon.

What if she falls asleep?

Adrenaline's been keeping her up so far.

But eventually,

But eventually, it'll fade away.

And then what?

Then comes darkness.

Then comes numbness.

Then comes death.

He never tires, never stops.

He never tires, never stops. He keeps going on

He never tires, never stops. He keeps going on and on

He never tires, never stops. He keeps going on and on and on.

His hands are like bindweed

His hands are like bindweed that threaten to wrap around her.

His hands are like bindweed that threaten to wrap around her. Pin her down

His hands are like bindweed that threaten to wrap around her. Pin her down and drag her to hell.

Down

Down down

Down down down

Why did he choose her?

Why did he choose her? Why can't anyone see him?

Why did he choose her? Why can't anyone see him?Why doesn't anyone listen?

They tell her she's making it up.

They tell her she's sick.

They tell her she needs to take her medication.

But she won't.

The man is real.

Just like the voices in her head.

If she falls asleep he might not get her.

If she falls asleep they might arrive.

If she falls asleep they could grab her.

If she falls asleep they could grab her. Take her to that room

If she falls asleep they could grab her. Take her to that room, give her pills.

If she falls asleep they could grab her. Take her to that room, make her numb.

If she falls asleep they could grab her. Take her to that room, the man is gone

If she falls asleep they could grab her. Take her to that room, the man is gone, but reality sinks in.

What she's heard.

What she's seen.

What she's done.
