Emotional Zombie

This song was created for Game of Bands round 255 : "Halloween VI"

Lyrics:

I feel tensions rising,
Eyes behind me,
Judging every step I take,
Paths intertwining,
Hearing heavy breaths,
Wind rustles, light steps,
Something unknown hiding
It might be out to get me.

But the dark doesn't scare me,
Skeletons, witches and Zombies,
What's in the dark doesn't scare me,
This endless dread does.
Wish I could feel something,
with my broken brain,
My emotions choose to abstain
The apathy scares me.

I'm too tired to be jump-scared,
Too drained to care,
If a ghost chose to possess me,
At least I'd feel something,
Pumpkin carve a frown,
Burn from inside out,
A chelsea smile now,
No more skin in my mouth.

But the dark, doesn't scare me,
Skeletons, witches and Zombies,
What's in the dark doesn't scare me,
This endless dread does.
Wish I could feel something
with my broken brain,
My emotions choose to abstain
The apathy scares me,
Emotional zombie.

Put me under a spell,
Witches drowned in a well,
Ghost stories we tell,
Really aren't that scary.
Sent a black cat to spook me,
Costumes and horror movies,
But only the cold can,
Sent shivers down my spine,

But the dark, doesn't scare me,
Skeletons, witches and Zombies,
What's in the dark doesn't scare me,
This endless dread does.
Wish I could feel something
with my broken brain,
My emotions choose to abstain
The apathy scares me,
Emotional zombie.

There's a void swallowing me whole,
These festivites feel empty,
Though there are monsters and candy,
All I feel is apathy,
I can't care anymore,
Brain is hollow,
Emotional vegetable,
All I feel is a cavity.

The lack of thought it scares me,
But Skeletons, witches and Zombies?
Myths don't scare me,
This endless dread does.
Alter my brain chemistry,
I'd change my personality,
I'd do anything because
The apathy scares me,
I'm an Emotional zombie.
