Hey stranger,
I've never seen the like.
They told me when I came to watch it like a hawk at night.
You gotta watch your step.
Did I catch you at a scary time?
I have a tendency to take it to a sharp decline.
Take a step,
start with the left foot in the front.
No way you'll get there if the right is having all the fun.
I got a feelin' you'll be likin' what you see in here.
That is as long as you can leave behind your every fear.

Before you,
is everything you'd love to know.
Say anything you want, if you say so.
Leave everything alone, or you can make it blow.
Enter here,
The House of Scattered Souls.

That weight you're liftin'
looks like a heavy load,
got a thousand ways that we could help you let it go.
Let it down,
watch it fall into the dark at night,
then watch the hawk let out a shriek and then jump into flight.
Have you seen the kind,
that let's you leave behind,
the kind of baggage laggage fad that can infest your mind?
Forget the sharp declines,
I've got a love to find.
I kiss my name into the wind and take whatever I can find.

Before you,
is everything you'd love to know.
Say anything you want, if you say so.
Leave everything alone, or you can make it blow.
Enter here,
The House of Scattered Souls.
