Take my hand
We're off to never never land

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White
Dreams of War, dreams of lies
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite, yeah!

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping you pillow tight

(Repeat Chorus Fill)

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never-never land

Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake

And never mind that noise you heard
It's just the beasts under your bed,
In your closet, in your head
