lyrics

The sidewalks are cracked
and the People are backwards
waiting in shadows
to take me away.

They talk to themselves
shake their pocket change
wipe the blood from their hands
in back alleyways

The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me
The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me

The catcalls and glances
the sideways advances
sweet offers from strangers
who seem so nice

They're not so well-meaning
you say they're misleading
If I were alone
they wouldn't think twice

The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me
The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me

The windows are barred
while you set the alarms
I'll keep to myself
if you guard all the doors
And I'm still alive
when you turn out the lights
locked in your arms
I'm locked in your sights

The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me
The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me

Are you the one they warned me of
you lured me off to lock me up.
Are you the captor or the king
And am I just some wretched thing
too afraid to run?
