Onyx night comes and bids your heart to stop
A cackling grin wears you thin to the bone
Blood vessels bulge and sweat drops start to pop
Apparitions croon in the twilight zone
Mirror in the dark, can't you hear your heart?
Crimson eyes peer from underneath the staircase
Flickering candlelight tears you apart
Bloody hand-prints linger upon your face
The call of a raven shatters the air
Your knees give out and you cannot escape
Go on, keep shrilly wailing, "who is there?"
In the distance waits a distorted shape
Cry loud, cry quick, for no one will hear
Whence comes the ghoul who shall devour your fear
