Music Lyrics That Could Be Horror Movies

Music always tells a story and therefore, it has become an integral part of our lives, you can’t really go anywhere without hearing a tune on the radio, in a commercial or a film. The horror genre itself has really benefited from a well placed musical score. Where would Jaws, Psycho or Friday the 13th be without the music?

Have you ever listened to a song and thought the lyrics could play out as a horror movie? Well, here’s a few that I think could possibly be the start of a beautiful horror films.

Melanie Martinez

“Play Date”

Suggested Plot Synopsis -A woman tires of her lover’s games and the ways he toys with her affection. She decides to make him play a game of nursery rhymes and children’s games that could end with deadly consequences.

You call me on the telephone, you feel so far away

You tell me to come over, there’s some games you wanna to play

I’m walking to your house, nobody’s home

Just me and you and you and me alone

We’re just playing hide and seek

It’s getting hard to breathe under the sheets with you

I don’t wanna to play no games

I’m tired of always chasing, chasing after you

I don’t give a f&$%k about you anyways

Whoever said I gave a s&$%t ‘bout you?

You never share your toys or communicate

I guess I’m just a play date to you

Wake up in your bedroom and there’s nothing left to say

When I try to talk you’re always playing board games

I wish I had monopoly over your mind

I wish I didn’t care all the time

We’re just playing hide and seek

It’s getting hard to breathe under the sheets with you

I don’t wanna to play no games

I’m tired of always chasing, chasing after you

I don’t give a f&%$k about you anyways

Whoever said I gave a s&%$t ‘bout you?

You never share your toys or communicate

I guess I’m just a play date to you

Ring around the rosy

I never know, I never know what you need

Ring around the rosy, I wanna give you, wanna give you

What you need

I don’t give a f&%$k about you anyways

Whoever said I gave a s&%$t ‘bout you?

You never share your toys or communicate

I guess I’m just a play date to you

You know I give a f**k about you everyday

Guess it’s time that I tell you the truth

If I share my toys, will you let me stay?

Don’t wanna to leave this play date with you

Panic At the Disco! 

“Let’s Kill Tonight”

Suggested Plot Synopsis – Granted this sounds like the plot line of another Purge film, but this could have a twist. This purge is not a haphazard congregation of disgruntled individuals this is a training for it.

If I retreat, words, wars and symphonies

Make room we’re taking over here

You’re the galantine, cold and alone, it suits you well

Won’t find me perching here again

May your feet serve you well

And the rest be sent to hell

Where they always have belonged

Cold hearts brew colder songs

Fate will play us out with a song of pure romance

Stomp your feet and clap your hands

Let’s kill tonight, kill tonight

Show them all you’re not the ordinary type

Let’s kill tonight, kill tonight

Show them all you’re not the ordinary type

Let’s kill tonight

May your feet serve you well

And the rest be sent to hell

Where they’ll always have belonged

Cold hearts brew colder songs

Fate will play us out with a song of pure romance

Stomp your feet and clap your hands

Let’s kill tonight, kill tonight

Show them all you’re not the ordinary type

Let’s kill tonight, kill tonight

Show them all you’re not the ordinary type

Let’s kill tonight, kill tonight

Show them all you’re not the ordinary type

Let’s kill tonight, kill tonight

Show them all you’re not the ordinary type

Let’s kill tonight

“Chick Habit”

Suggested Plot Synopsis –  In a dystopian style world, women rule and therefore, they are judge and jury in a world where differing kinds of misconduct are worthy of death.

Hang up the chick habit

Hang it up, daddy,

Or you’ll be alone in a quick

Hang up the chick habit

Hang it up, daddy,

Or you’ll never get another fix

I’m telling you it’s not a trick

Pay attention, don’t be thick

Or you’re liable to get licked

You’re gonna see the reason why

When they’re spitting in your eye

They’ll be spitting in your eye

Hang up the chick habit

Hang it up, daddy,

A girl’s not a tonic or a pill

Hang up the chick habit

Hang it up, daddy,

You’re just jonesing for a spill

Oh, how your bubble’s gonna burst

When you meet another nurse

She’ll be driving in a hearse

You’re gonna need a heap of glue

When they all catch up with you

And they cut you up in two

Now your ears are ringing

The birds have stopped their singing

Everything is turning grey

No candy…

Soundgarden

“Burden in my Hand”

Suggested Plot Synopsis – A man awakens to find himself chained to another man who will drag him through the desert in order to make him atone for every sin he has ever committed in his life.

Follow me into the desert

As thirsty as you are

Crack a smile and cut your mouth

And drown in alcohol

Cause down below the truth is lying

Beneath the riverbed

So quench yourself and drink the water

That flows below her head

Oh, no there she goes

Out in the sunshine the sun is mine

I shot my love today, would you cry for me

I lost my head again, would you lie for me

I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand

I lost my head again, would you cry for me

Close your eyes and bow your head

I need a little sympathy

Cause fear is strong and love’s for everyone

Who isn’t me

So kill your health and kill yourself

And kill everything you love

And if you live you can fall to pieces

And suffer with my ghost

Just a burden in my hand

Just an anchor on my heart

Just a tumor in my head

And I’m in the dark

So follow me into the desert

As desperate as you are

Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven

And all the little pigs have God
