Verse

The verse has the same chords that the part above, but they're
played with distortion. Hear very carefully the song so you can catch
the rhythm.

Here are the lyrics:

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light
Sometimes when you're scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's watching you
