** Amy Lee's said the song is actually about being [[http://songmeanings.com/songs/view/3530822107858623384/ stalked]]. "I went through some weird experiences with stalkers. It's weird how it works. My lyrics are so intimate that people feel like they really know me, and I don't know them at all. My privacy had been completely invaded and there were a couple of nights where I couldn't stay at my house. So I wrote a song about it through the eyes of the stalker, and with my perspective, too."
* "Going Under" features [[NightmareFace nightmare faces]] done by the ladies doing Amy Lee's makeup and hair and the audience. As well as the NightmareFace at the end.
* "I Must Be Dreaming" (which is [[RefrainFromAssuming a different song from "Bleed"]]) becomes horrifying with a little attention to the lyrics. The first verse seems to describe the narrator hiding in terror while her father beats her mother, and then disassociating when he turns on her, proceeding into a chorus where she desperately tells herself what's happening to her isn't real. The second verse brings a HopeSpot as she considers getting help and telling someone... but then [[SanitySlippageSong the chorus takes over again]] and is all that's left for the rest of the song. Combined with the stifled, claustrophobic sound, it chills the bones.

* Evanescence's trademark unnerving, mournful, paranoid and suffocating sound. Just listen to songs like "Bleed", "Lies", "Missing" or "The Only One". One can argue that Evanescence is as far as creepiness can get into the mainstream.
* "Origin" (thirty four seconds of creepiness,) "Whisper", "Sweet Sacrifice", and... uhh... most everything else.

* YMMV, but this Troper has always found My Immortal creepy. Looking at the lyrics, it's about how a deceased lover haunts the house the two of them once shared and prevents the surviving lover from moving on with their life.

* "Even In Death", a song that seems to be about digging up your dead lover and taking his body home with you. Chilling.
* "Haunted" has a story attached about a little girl who goes into an abandoned house and is captured to kill the evil thing that lives inside. Said evil mindrapes her every night, and its implied she has no reason to live anymore but to kill the evil. Who is also her only friend. Pretty disturbing.

-->""A little girl around 8 or 9 in a little white Easter dress is walking down a neighborhood street bouncing a little red ball. As she approaches an obviously deserted large house with a sinister demeanor, her attention moves from the ball to the house. Not paying attention to her bouncing, the ball hits the curb and ricochets toward the house. As she chases the little red ball toward the house, the ball picks up unnatural momentum and bounces right into the huge gaping front door. The little girl pauses for a moment, looks up at the house, which now appears to be staring down at her, and cautiously enters the house in search of her little red ball. as she slowly walks into the atrium, she surveys the decaying mess that once was obviously a beautiful mansion. She becomes mesmerized by the exquisite detail of every inch of the banister winding up the seemingly endless staircase in front of her. Suddenly her thoughts are broken by a horrifying commotion. She whips around to run out the front door, but finds only a blank wall where the door once stood. Frightened, she runs down the first hallway she sees, trying desperately to find a way out, but with every turn the world behind her changes, bending to the will of the house, so that even finding a path back to the atrium where she began becomes impossible. Terrified, the little girl sinks into a corner, puts her head in her hands, and weeps.

10 years later....

The little girl wakes up in a panic, now a young woman. Dirty, scarred. She's now clothed in black pants, work boots, and a black wife beater. Her skin is pale and dirty. Sun has not graced her flesh in over a decade. She wakes to find a meal placed on a dirty silver tray before her, just enough to sustain life, just like every morning before. Placed there by a figure she can only see in passing, around a corner, walking through a door.... a figure that has become her only friend, and her only hate. Her entire existence has become nothing but to hunt and destroy this shadow that keeps her here. As she hunts him relentlessly day after day, she becomes lost in the dichotomy of her being. This thing that keeps her here, this person that repeatedly rapes her mind and watches her when she sleeps, has become her only friend. For is this person left, she would cease to exist. For she live only to kill him. But lives only FOR him. Every day the house changes around her, so that every day she wakes in a foreign land. The only constant... is him. She hears his heart beating, she smells him, she can only think of finding him, but he is also the only thing she knows of love."

* The music video for "Going Under". The ''Bring Me To Life'' video can also qualify.
* The lyrics to ''Snow White Queen'' are unbelievably disturbing, especially to someone who has had encounters with stalkers before.
* Lithium, all that coldness and the ice and being under the ice swimming..nightmare fuel for sure.
* Tourniquet, a song about a woman who slits her wrists in the bathtub, and when she's about to die starts to regret it. The song is her slowly exsanguinating as she begs the titular tourniquet to save her.
