Into the Night

Written by: Michael Rice

In the shadows of the night 
faintly first then so plain 
I heard you crying, 
I felt your pain 

Beasts dwelling within the swamp 
were clawing their way toward you 
a victim of the minds trickery 
a lie so bold should never been told 

Creeping into the veins of your vanity 
gently at first slowly possessing 
captured you, your mind and body 
taking you farther away from your dreams 

Another path you could have taken 
but your new found freedom could not wait 
curious, and excited you would drift 
away from the light into the night
