Darkness is under your bed at night

Darkness consumes you when no one is in sight

Darkness breathes down your spine

Waiting for you to lose every piece of your mind

Do you feel it yet?

It’s a game of Russian roulette

Dangerous, unpredictable, and fearful

Do you get it yet?

Darkness is skillful

It plots and schemes against you when you’re low

All the way until you’re crippled, stiff, and unable to move

It’s a wreaking, screaming, nightmare

Something not quite fair

But awfully crude

Do you finally get it yet?

The darkness is you

But you still don’t have a clue
