The Price of Entry to Sojourn Station

it's that tingle up our spine when the springloaded cat leaps
it's that quiver of delight when our secret lover creeps
behind us to deliver that shiver of fright in the night
we mind only till we find that everything is all right

we find we must test ourselves against fear and fear alone
in the comfort of our theater and the privacy of our home
in a world where real horrors walk about in broad daylight
we stalk packaged terror to give us courage to keep up the fight
