(Song) Slendy's Watching Me


"That's right, a song with words. One thing that's often overlooked in the Slenderman stories (the more recent ones anyway) is that fact that he's supposed to be associated with kidnapping children. I, and many others, often wonder what happens to those children. This song it sung from the perspective of a child that's being "stalked" by Slenderman. Is he really playing with them, or is he hunting them? I guess we'll never know.

I just like the idea of a sweet and happy sounding SM song. I like to think that wherever they are, those children are happy like the one in this song.

I used the demo for the vocaloid Nekomura Iroha for the vocals. As he name might suggest, she is not an English-speaking vocaloid so her pronunciation is way off. Sorry about that. In the zipped file below, I've included the karaoke version. So if you make a cover (which I would love btw), don't forget to add it as a video response." (from YT cuz I'm laaaazy)

I'll admit it. I love this song. I will file this under my proudest achievement at the moment.

And I freaking love accordions. Why are they so awesome?

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. I'm feeling much better now.

...

Well, I got some sleep at least. It's a start.

LYRICS

One AM, I toss and turn, awake in my own bed
I can’t sleep because of a creepypasta I read

Against my better judgment, I peek out of my window
And I find a frightening figure standing down below

A black suit, a black tie, and he seems to lack a face
I looked away for a moment, he was gone without a trace

And I thought
Even if he’s shy
What a charming guy

I don’t have to worry
‘Cuz I know Slendy’s watching me

No one else sees him, it seems
He follows me in my dreams

He doesn’t like to talk a lot but that’s okay with me
He’s really tall and good at blending in with all the trees

Some days when we’re all alone we play hide and seek
But he always finds me every time, I think he cheats

“He’s so mean” they say
But he just wants to play

I don’t have to worry
‘Cuz I know Slendy’s watching me

No one else sees him, it seems
He follows me in my dreams

We’re going to a place where our fun will never end
Where I can always play games with my newest best friend

I don’t know when I’ll be home but I don’t feel too bad
But I wonder why mommy and daddy look so sad

I don’t have to worry
‘Cuz I know Slendy’s watching me

Mist rolls in and braches sway
He’ll come for you another day

  1. I can't recall which, but some Japanese Vocaloids have a pronunciation setting for English, IIRC.

  2. Luka's the only Japanese vocaloid that has an English voicebank. And English version of Miku is coming out soon though.

  3. Alright, I'll calm down...it bugs me, but I'll keep it to myself. I'm a bit of a worrier, you know...better to be wary and safe than to assume you're safe while there's something behind you.

    You know, I've never used vocaloid...I really should.

  4. Can I get a copy of the lyrics to this song? Cause that would be awesome.

  5. Megurine Luka only? I'll keep that in mind.

    Also, I like how the "uncanny valley" effect of a Vocaloid's not-so-human voice and the off pronunciation make the song a bit creepy, while keeping it happy and upbeat. Goes well with the theme.

  6. I think this is...pro-Slendy propaganda...

    Makes Slenderman sound like a good guy that just wants a friend instead of this stalker guy.
