It’s close to midnight
Something evil’s lurkin’in the dark
Under the moonlight
You see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream
But terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze
As horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed

‘Cause this is thriller
Thriller night
And no one’s gonna save you
From the beast about to strike
You know it’s thriller
Thriller night
You’re fighting for your life
Inside a killer
Thriller tonight, yeah

  1. Getting injured in Thailand is not an uncommon thing. As you probably noticed, there are a lot of traffic accidents (as well as other types of accidents) throughout the country. Thailand lawyer are also aware of this; so there are legal statutes addressed at people that have been hurt (or for their families, in the case of death) from an accident. I’ve seen a lot of accidents in Thailand myself. Most that I’ve seen involve motorcycles. Most seem to involve people that have been drinking. Police should probably keep a better watch over this (drinking is a big problem in itself). Although helmets are easily available at almost every retail store in the country, many times (too often) the accident victims were not wearing a helmet at the time of their unfortunate accident, which frequently results in death or long-term disability. Everyone should definitely be careful and take all safety precautions whenever traveling in Thailand.
