He is the thing you fear in the dark,
he is the thing that makes the nights,
He is the thing that hates the light,,
he is the thing that is fear itself,
he is the thing that makes life lose health,
he is the thing that lives in the dreams,
he is the thing that makes you lose your beans
He is the one, the night, the darkness,
he is the shadow, blocking the light,
he is the fear that lives on its own,
for even fear is afraid,
Latin calls him mort, English death,
life called him evil, the shadows lord.
For even death must be afraid.
