You think you're awake, but you're not,
It's the start of the nightmare you thought you had forgot.
You think you're alone, but look around,
There are plenty of things that can be found.
The voices you hear, don't mean someone is there,
They are only the ghosts of the clowns you once would cheer.
They haunt this place that once was fun,
But now it's time for you to... run!
No laughing here, it's only fright,
Only darkness now, there is no light.
You try to open your eyes but they are sealed shut,
You will just have to keep running foot before foot.
The clowns aren't happy like they used to be,
Like you, they are stuck in this dream wanting to be free.
But right now they will only try to hurt you,
As ghosts surround you, what will you do?
