Laura Scarlett and David Disher create lush, genre-bending records. Disher’s layered arrangements and production merge styles from the 60’s through the 80’s. Scarlett’s vocals add a haunting overtone to the music. Their recordings feature new arrangements of old pop songs, though the duo’s original songwriting has drifted into recent releases. ... more

Track Name: Heart Race
She heard his footsteps in the hallway
she saw the darkness of his silhouette
her own reflection in the knife
but he hasn’t found her hiding yet

She puts her back against the wall
oh yeah, she’s scared
if she hides herself then maybe she’ll be spared
she kills the lights and closes the door
hoping it’s just a nightmare

She feels her heart race
Colour drains from her face
screaming through the hallways
she hears him closing in

She feels his warm breath
down the back of her neck
hears his careful footsteps
the knife against her skin

She’s screaming for her friends now
but it doesn’t make a difference
she’s picking up her footsteps
but it doesn’t make a difference

He moves step by step
each closer than the one before
she screams “help, please help”
as she struggles to open the front door

She feels her heart race
Colour drains from her face
screaming through the hallways
she hears him closing in

She feels his warm breath
down the back of her neck
hears his careful footsteps
the knife against her skin

He feels her heart race
he feels her heart
Track Name: He Will Kill Again
The evil has escaped, oh yes it is gone from here
We let the monster free, may God forgive us
He leaves a trail of ghosts and a dreadful atmosphere
and the horror that our nightmares might outlive us

He will kill again, oh yes he will
He'll come for you and yours
be sure to lock your doors
He won't stop, and he cannot be killed
Hide beneath your soiled sheets and pray for morning

In no time at all the devil is home again
His once abandoned house wakes, dark and haunted
He's become more than a story for frightened kids
The children called, and his bloody knife responded

(Get up and run)
He will kill again, oh yes he will
(yeah, we thought we had him cornered)
He'll come for you and yours
be sure to lock your doors
(the demon caught six bullets and kept coming)
He won't stop and he cannot be killed
(such a blank, relentless butcher)
Hide beneath your soiled sheets and pray for morning.
Track Name: Nightmare I
You wake up to a nightmare
abandoned and bereft
Was it triffids, plague or zombies?
Is there really no one left?

You roam an empty city
coming to terms with its sad fate
Are there really no survivors?
Can it really be too late?

So ends our joy and our sorrow
(a hard lesson learned)
Good-bye cruel world
(oh, yes it slipped right through our fingers)
There will be no tomorrow
(just let it burn)
Good-bye cruel world
(there's really no reason to linger)

Is there anybody out there?
Can anybody hear this?
Is there anybody out there?
Please, come in
For God's sake, come in!
Track Name: Nightmare II
You wake up to a nightmare
footsteps outside your door
is it just the cat, or something else?
Just darkness, nothing more

You breathe a sigh of relief
and then a chill runs down your spine
there’s someone right behind you
better run or else you’ll die
Track Name: Black-Eyed Spider
Come back here you black-eyed spider
Won't you have a seat?
I've always admired your way with people
Would you like someone to eat?

Tell me about the radiation
that made you grow so big
Was it your microwave, your cellphone
or something more sinister?

I love the way you crawl, black-eyed spider
up your black and winding stair
into your parlour with such alluring style
in vogue and vile

I love the way you dress, black-eyed spider
You're on the cutting edge
Dressed to kill and killing to eat
We're all dead meat

Come back here you black-eyed spider
Won't you please explain?
Do your desires respond to reason?
Does your blood-lust have a name?

Tell us about your perfect monster
The haunter of our dreams
Where current fashion meets
antique atrocities
and something more sinister

I love your fatal bite, black-eyed spider
and the venom in your smile
but we're too young and pretty to die
so pass us by

Give up the ghost,
black-eyed spider
Track Name: The Shape
I wait in the fog outside your house
I know you’re alone, your parents went out
I am the shape, I have escaped
I’ve come for you, You cannot hide, you’re never safe

I’m the breath on the other end of your phone
I’m the man in the dark corners of your home
I am the shape, you will not escape
I am the hairs on your neck when you’re all alone

Shivering
all of your
blood is
running cold
Death is waiting in my fingertips

You are
screaming for
all of your
friends
can’t hear you now
I can smell the fear it’s in your blood

You’re afraid of the dark and the howling wind
You’ve got goosebumps all along your skin
You are afraid, you should not have stayed
Alone in the dark, you are defenseless against my blade

You live in the fabric of my dreams
You keep me alive with your frightened screams
You are my prey, you will die today
You can run as fast as you can but you won’t escape
I am the shape
