Midnight Moonlight


Midnight, moonlight, lost in the black night

The headless horseman is coming up the road

You’re shaking, shivering, quivering in fright

He might take you off to Satan’s dark abode

Crouching, creeping, oppression is sweeping

A grey mist encompassing everything around

The sorrowful sound of a young girl weeping

The manic laughter around you does resound

Darkness, lightless, you’re groping sightless

The smell of rotting corpses permeates the air

Fingers touching something cold and lifeless

Bloated maggots crawl all through your hair

Tottering and turning, your flesh is burning

The white hot cinders are blistering your feet

Your nerves are jangling, stomach is churning

There’s no way forward but you can’t retreat

Staggering, stumbling, in blindness fumbling

Cold hand of death is placed upon your knee

Mutations gathering, dark voices grumbling

The Devil invites you ‘Come dance with me’

Squirming, sneaking, the rats are squeaking

Bat wings are flapping all around your head

A coffin lid opens with an ominous creaking

Voices are wailing from the land of the dead

Slithering and slipping, your mind is flipping

The scream of a banshee sounding in your ear

Tentacles entwining you and tightly gripping

It’s hard to breathe, you are frozen with fear

Daylight, nice sight, it makes you feel alright

The dawn brings a refuge and keeps you sane

You made it through the long and black night

In a few more hours it will be darkness again

Midnight, moonlight, lost in the black night

The headless horseman is coming up the road

You’re shaking, shivering, quivering in fright

He might take you off to Satan’s dark abode
