Sitting up, late at night
Cold as hell, black as spades
In my place I escape up into my hideout
My friends all say,
Drift into a deeper state
Dirt grits between my feet
Hypnosis guides my hand
Sit in granny's rockin' chair
Reminisce in the attic
Cobwebs make me squint
Moonbeams surge through the sky
Surely that like the cat waiting
