the dead

As the spirits of the dead
Walk among us all
Only the chosen will know
For we will here them call

 All night and day
They won't leave us alone
For we are the few
It is written in stone

 To know these lost souls
The sorrows they feel
I'm frightened of them
Is this all real

 Have I lost my mind
Am I the freak they say
Can I believe in what I see
I wait for the day

 The dead will walk among us
And some of us shall see
That we are liked together
For they will never let us be
