All At Once

All At Once

Shadows endlessly deepening
So much for bravery
Fear is overtaking
At the sounds of creeps
And creatures beneath me
Holding your eyes shut wont do a thing

One by one they’re advancing
What choice is left but
Standing up against them
With parades of plastic, stuffing and fabric
Sound the alarms
We’ll hold them ’til dawn

All At Once
We will run them from our shores
We will rise
No more sleepless nights in horror
We won’t see this evil defeat us
March with me we’re off to war
We’ll stand our ground and we’ll fight
We’ll take back the night

How can this still be happening?
The things I’ve seen
No one would believe me
Years of holding back relentless attacking
Have left me on my own
I know I’ve got to try

I’ve spent my whole life saying
That it’s all in my head
I’m afraid they’re very real
The monsters under your bed
And I’ve tried so hard to stop them
As they come from the depths
I know it sounds completely crazy
But you’re all I’ve got left

All At Once (grab your guns)
We will run them from our shores
We will rise (hear our cries)
No more sleepless nights in horror
We won’t see this evil defeat us
March with me we’re off to war
We’ll stand our ground and we’ll fight
We’ll take back the night

You laugh but you don’t have a clue
You have to believe this is true

All At Once, if you must, cast your stones and write me off
But if you lock me up, it sure wont help at all
They’ll come again, it wont end, there‚Äôll be no one to defend you
If I’m stuck inside a cell when darkness falls

Please! Don’t leave me here in these chains! Set me free!
You don’t understand, they’re on their way!
I can’t protect you from here
Don’t you see? This is the end. (Good god!)
The sounds of their screams as it’s all falling down
Their monstrous footsteps quake the ground
I hear humanity fall
And I plead, forgive me I’ve failed you.
