about

Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope you're ready for some spoopy music!

People have been asking me for a while to sing something from Frisk's perspective, and also very clearly wanted it to be a genocide run song. While the majority of those people wanted me to write a Stronger Than You parody for Frisk, I don't want that to be the only tune on my channel! So I thought I'd change it up while still filling most of the criteria for what you all requested!

I was heavily inspired by Humming-fly's animated comic of this same song when I heard it for the first time a few weeks back, and immediately set about making my own cover. Very much to my surprise, my voice is well-suited for such a song!

Please note that I *did* take a little creative liberties with the lyrics in a way that I felt fit the Undertale story more! They are very small, but you will notice some differences in the lyrics. These aren't mistakes, but if you happen to notice them, good for you, and I hope you think that they work as well as I thought they did!

lyrics

They send me away to find them a fortune
A chest filled with diamonds and gold
The house was awake
With shadows and monsters
The hallways they echoed and groaned

I sat alone, in bed 'til the morning
I'm crying, "They're coming for me."
And I tried to hold these secrets inside me
My mind's like a deadly disease

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me."
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?

I paced around for hours on empty
I jumped at the slightest of sounds
And I couldn't stand the person inside me
I turned all the mirrors around

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me."
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?

I'm well acquainted
With villains that live in my bed
They beg me to write them
So they'll never die when I'm dead

And I've grown familiar
With villains that live in my head
They beg me to write them
So I'll never die when I'm dead

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me."
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me."
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?
