"My band and I just walked through a haunted house where men in masks were running after us with chainsaws," Swift said on Twitter, referring to the theme park's "Halloween Horror Nights" attraction.

"I ended up cowering in the corner, out of breath and asking "WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?!?!". No answers from the men with the chainsaws," she added.

The track comes of her recently released Speak Now album which includes cryptic clues to a song's meaning by capitalizing letters in the printed lyric booket for the CD. For "Haunted" it spells STILL TO THIS DAY, according to Yahoo! Music.

Swift told Yahoo! Music that every one of her songs is like a "a roadmap to what that relationship stood for, with little markers that maybe everyone won't know, but there are things that were little nuances of the relationship, little hints."

"Everything that happens to me gets put into a song," Swift told Glamour magazine. "For some reason, I'm really comfortable talking about my personal life in songs. There, I dont hold back: names, dates, times, expressions on people's faces, exactly where we were and how it felt, what I wish I would have said to them in the moment."

Swift's has been burning up the Billboard chart with her recent release, with industry insiders predicting that she could have one of the biggest opening sales week of the year, according to MTV.

"Let's say even though 1 million is possible, even if she doesn't get that, it will probably sell 800,000 or more, which will give her the give biggest single sales week for an album this year ... or last," Billboard's Senior Chart Manager and analyst told the music channel.

Fearless, Swift's last album, debuted in November 2008 at the top of the charts, selling 582,000 in it's initial week and going on to sell 5.95 million copies in the United States.

The country superstar was recently honored with a wax double on Wednesday at Madame Tussauds in Times Square. The two were clad in identical dresses by by Jenny Packham, with the wax figure holding up a custom guitar decorated with 2,000 Swarovski Crystals.
