Verse 1

Dark
Distant figures in the night
Swaying strangely but look twice and they’re gone
Singing their song
In your head

There
At the edges of your sight
Something flickers and the lights turn to black
A hand on your back
A whisper

Turn back now
Don’t you make a sound
Or they will hunt you down


Chorus

Out here
When the night falls
Down here
Something inside the walls is breaking through

Out here
After moonrise
Nightmare
Shapes in the darkness with eyes that follow you

Verse 2

Look
In the mirror something stirs
In the photographs a blur of a face
Cold in your veins
You shiver

Soft
Shambling footsteps on the path
Make one wrong move and the trap has been sprung
You better run
They’re coming


Bridge

Under your bed
They lie
In wait

Teeth
Poised to bite
A cold hand
That holds
A knife


Start
Running for your dear life

Chorus

Out here
When the night falls
Down here
Something inside the walls is breaking through

Out here
After moonrise
Nightmare
Shapes in the darkness with eyes that follow you

Out here
When the wind howls
Beware
Jaws closing in with a growl that spells your doom

Have you lost your mind
Say your prayers, the end is nigh
Goodbye

Verse 3

Sharp
Claws on pale and slender hands
Forcing their way through the cracks in the door
Unliving horde
They hunger

Slash
Hear them sharpening their knives
Should have heeded all the signs, it’s too late
You’ve sealed your fate
One last time

Chorus
[Exit]
