I'd Be Scared If I Believed

This was written for Katya at Oddio Overplay for the 2006 Halloween compilation, Calling All Fiends. You'll find this at track 27.

Thanks to Frankie Big Face for the fabulous sax tracks! There's also a glass harmonica (tuned wine glasses) in there making more scary noises. And Jason's "ooooooo" gets it all going :)

have you ever seen
a living ghost
a soul alive
a walking host
I saw a man
he came to me
I couldn't hear
but I could see

he stood and stared
I wasn't scared
until a muted noise
made me think I lost the choice
i'd be scared if I believed
he looked so real like he could breath
if I believed then I'd be scared
if I could breath I'd yell "beware!!!!"

he was there for like an hour
I didn't know then what for
he came and left I don't know how
but he didn't use a door
he made it known his watchful eye
would follow me each and every day
and what i feared and what i dread...
what will i do that makes me pay?

he stood and stared
I wasn't scared
until a muted noise
made me know I lost my choice
i'd be scared if I believed
he looked so real like he could breath
if I believed then I'd be scared
if I could breath I'd yell "beware!!!!"

well, i was scared cause I believe
he was so real and he could breath
I believe so I was scared
if I could breath I'd run from there! i'd run from there...
