Track Name: I Saw Michael Myers Standing Outside My House
The smell of latex
Or is it just 21st-century dread?
What do I say next
When I can’t tell if it’s in my head?

So I shut up and try to sleep
Keep my chin tucked in like a dying church mouse
Wikipedia these movies, but can’t go too deep
‘Cause I saw Michael Myers standing outside my house

Went to the office
Some guy had a seizure on the express train
And I just lost it
He wore karate headgear to protect his brain

I got no work done
Wasted my whole day reading about climate change
Reload my staple gun
To keep my sight on white light in the target’s range

Then at home, he was behind the hedge
Hands on leaves that were dead and brown
We’re all just pirouetting on the butcher knife’s edge
And I saw Michael Myers standing outside my house

So I shut up and try to sleep
Keep my chin tucked in like a dying church mouse
Wikipedia these movies, but can’t go too deep
And I saw Michael Myers standing outside my house

He’s at the staircase
He’s in the kitchen, can’t see his eyes
He’s at the front door
He’s in the backyard while the laundry dries

Then at home, he was behind the hedge
Hands on leaves that were red and brown
We’re all just pirouetting on the butcher knife’s edge
And I saw Michael Myers standing outside my house

So I shut up and try to sleep
Keep my chin tucked in like a dying church mouse
I Wikipedia these movies, but can’t go too deep
And I saw Michael Myers standing outside my house
