Loping through the woods.

Through the lethal forestland,
Hungry for a kill.

In the shadows near your house,
Trying to get in.

Of volcanoes and fire,
And mounds of grinning skulls.

Nightmares take over, and
Cruelly torment your mind.

Torment you throughout the night;
Harbingers of doom.

Forever drawing nearer,

Hearing footsteps round your bed,
Your mind petrified.

Through the dark, lonely night,
Diving down on prey.

On the unwary.

Building up inside your mind;
The night terrifies.

Night terrors moving nearer,
Closing for the kill.

Inches above the treetops,
Searching for a kill.

Nightmares come to life.

Just outside your vision,
Slinking round behind you.

For which there is no answer,
Fever dreams haunt you.

A phantom behind each tree,
Nowhere left to hide.

Quivers, changes, and becomes:

In this haunted town.

Relentlessly watching as,
The man begins to die.
