Waltzing along the blacktop,
Killing all who stop.

Ghostly phantom images,
Leaping out at you.

Of unseen hands in the dark,
Squeezing, squeezing, squeez....

Leaping out at you.

Their tanned flesh used as lampshades,
By the Nazi fiends.

Imbibing unwary sleepers,
Through cracks in the floor.

Hunting through the dark streets,
In the early morn.

Deep within your mind,
Is keeping you entranced.

A nameless abomination,
Oozes ever nearer.

Creatures that thrive at night,
Lurking in shadows.

Raising the dead to find,
What the future will bring.

Around the dark night streets,
Set on doing evil.

Innocent strangers over,
Hunting unwary prey.

Gibbering at the full moon,
Plotting evil acts.

Sensing fresh blood
Night demons shrill, as they go
Hunting after midnight.

Night dreams are the dreams
Of terror that stalks the night;
Dreams of your own death.

Night eagles winging
Just above the rooftops,
Watch your every move.

Hunting down the innocent,
Late one moonless night.

In the dark and soulful night,
Death is coming soon.

Killers stalking the darkness,
Murder all insight.

Spreading its evil influence,
As nightfall comes.

Low above the treetops,
Searching for a kill.

Softly above your head,
Drifting down toward you.

In the dark of night, with
Crawling, hopping death.

Elephantine shapes winging,
Round and round your head.

Are waiting ever waiting,
Needing to pass on.
