Creation Promo Summary
The unbelievable is always with us,
Luring us through glass doors to our Doom.
Old Snakey spent some time down in ancient Egypt:
Now he's fiddling with his papers, ain't got no time for his visitors...

We know what they left in Snakey's room.
Yes, we know what they left in Snakey's room.

Now, Snakey's where he is when we last saw him,
That is to say he's fastened to his bed.
But Snakey's mind is climbing up the wardrobe:
Snakey would most readily be anywhere instead.

Something that Old Snakey saw a long long time ago, won't leave him alon

The patients all fall silent.
Snakey's been here for years, but right now this is something new.
Snakey's having trouble with his favourite statuette,
And the Something that's in charge of it ain't finished with him yet...
I said that we all know that spirits can be dangerous.
Meanwhile, the shadow of the snake climbs up the wall.
Sometimes your English Language is not adequate at all...
It's a shadow of a snake! IT'S THE IMPENDING SNAKE!

We know what they left in Snakey's room.
Yes, we know what they left in Snakey's room. (And what's going to happen..)

Something that Old Snakey saw a long long time ago won't leave him alone.
Something that Old Snakey saw a long long time ago won't leave him alone.
Someone that Old Snakey met a long long time ago won't leave him alone.
Someone that Old Snakey met four thousand years ago Won't leave him alone.
