Hidden away from any light
Hides a spectator, awaiting to fright
He lives in the room-in the closet and corners

He waits until there is no light
Frozen with fear-it's going to be a long night
Whispers, creaks, unexplainable noises enchant the darkness

Forever haunted by this unseen enmity
A mass of darkness never to leave
And alone-always alone I sit and grieve

The spectator watches in the shadows
I know he is there, but I choose to ignore him
But the candles are starting to dim...
