Threatened

"Threatened"

[ROD SERLING INTRO]

Tonight’s story is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction

A monster had arrived in the village

The major ingredient of any recipe for fear is the unknown

And this person or thing is soon to be met

He knows every thought, he can feel every emotion

Oh yes, I did forget something didn’t I? I forgot to introduce you to the monster.

You’re fearing me, ‘cause you know I’m a beast

Watching you when you sleep, when you’re in bed

I’m underneath

You’re trapped in halls, and my face is the walls

I’m the floor when you fall, and when you scream it’s ‘cause of me

I’m the living dead, the dark thoughts in your head

I heard just what you said

That’s why you’ve got to be threatened by me

[CHORUS]

You should be watching me, you should feel threatened

While you sleep, while you creep, you should be threatened

Every time your lady speaks she speaks of me, threatened

Half of me you’ll never be, so you should feel threatened by me

You think you’re by yourself, but it’s my touch you felt

I’m not a ghost from Hell, but I’ve got a spell on you

Your worst nightmare, it's me, I'm everywhere

In one blink I’ll disappear, and then I’ll come back to haunt you

I’m telling you, when you lie under a tomb

I’m the one watching you

That’s why you got to be threatened by me

[CHORUS]

[ROD SERLING VERSE]

The unknown monster is about to embark

From a far corner, out of the dark

A nightmare, that’s the case

Never Neverland, that’s the place

This particular monster can read minds

Be in two places at the same time

This is judgement night, execution, slaughter

The devil, ghosts, this monster is torture

You can be sure of one thing, that’s fate

A human presence that you feel is strange

A monster that you can see disappear

A monster, the worst thing to fear.

[CHORUS x 3]

[ROD SERLING OUTRO]

What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare.

It isn’t. It’s the beginning.
