No other fate

A silent shadow steals across the floor
What demons hide inside it’s chilling gloom
I’m trapped within a ghoul infested room
No other fate could terrify me more
      The monster of the dark has fear in store
      He visits me each night to banish sleep
      I lie awake to watch the darkness creep
      No other fate could terrify me more
What purposes were nights created for
They only lead to panic and despair
I see the shades and know there’s something there
No other fate could terrify me more
      A silent shadow steals across the floor
      No other fate could terrify me more
