A Fish Without Water

This house doesn't need ghosts to scare anyone 
The walls take sanity for fun 
They'll hex you with whispers in tongue 
Arrive with confidence, you'll leave with none 
The longer you stay, the further undone 
The air stifles, it thickens and numbs 
It weighs down on you like tons 
Constricting every cell, it stuns 
Skeletons in these closets tote guns 
Heat comes at you like fire from dragons 
I mean heat like the fury of a thousand suns 
Your mind weakens and maddens 
This house kills souls like it's a soul assassin 
A suffering only the wicked can fathom
