From out of the night
Foul omnivores are hunting,
Pig-like monsters loudly snuffling
Then so foully grunting.

Grunting as they sense a straggler
Walking outside alone at night,
Someone they can terrorise
As they roam under the moonlight.

From out of the night
Malevolent horrors appearing,
As within the torrid night
Leviathans are nearing.

Prehistoric predators stalking
Through dark and lonely alleyways,
Hoping to feast upon the innocent
Before the coming of the new day.

Night Feeders, Dark Riders, Seekers
All hunting beneath the full moon,
Desirous of perpetrating mayhem
Within the midnight gloom.

Villainous beings screeching
As they run down fleeing quarry,
Dancing, prancing, frolicking
Like they're at the Devil's Jamboree.

From out of pitch-black shadows
Eerie phantoms are appearing,
Signalling to the living folk
That their death is surely nearing.
