Night-time evil approaching
Evil crouching near.

Sworn to do evil against,
All who live outside.

To invade your dreams.

Holds you like a lover,
Drags you to your doom.

With long, shadowy arms,
Drawing you to danger.

Foreteller of great evil,
Creeping, slinking death.

Faces and hands, in the dark night;
Closing in on you.

Run evil, loping creatures,
Hunting human prey.

Performed on a lonely hill,
Far from prying eyes.

Under the cover of night,
On a lonely hill.

Under starless, moonless skies,
Piscine horrors near,

All manner of evil,
Lurking just out of sight.

You watch Pan’s followers spread,
Terror far and wide.

Mind fogged by terror
Of unseen things in the night,
Snarling, phantom beasts.

A phantom behind each rock,
Readying to pounce.

A long neck ringed with gills, and
Eyes round as saucers.

Slowly toward their prey,
Readying to slaughter.
