   If ever you find yourself crawling through your attic at night


   you find a doll in a box

   there's nothing to be scared about even if it blinks

   when it's not supposed to

   and the attic door slams behind you


   And even if you feel a tug at your sleeve


  It's your imagination

  playing tricks with you because the alternative isn't worth thinking about


  screaming never works
