lyrics

Showdown begins.

Counting the faces and heads in the crowd
Figure out who's human and who's disguised
Every Doom Rider will twitch when they blink
They're slick but they're not error free
Trapped in an elevator just me and him
Reach in my pocket grab hold of an ink pen
Try to decide if he'll catch the scent
Try to survive 'til we hit floor ten

I saw the twitch and he saw the intention
The pen was pulled and then I made my move
As soon as I thought it he had disappeared
But I didn't believe the showdown had ended

In the elevator I allowed the doors to shut
He falsely assumed I had exited the lift-car
After 5 seconds he had quickly reappeared
My pen was ready to prevent his beating heart

The Showdown ended.
