Within the Dark


Photobucket
rushing into harms way only thought is to escape
but what am i escaping from the fear overwhelms
run fast i can feel its hot breath upon my neck
terror within the dark is hard to escape from

the moon brightly throwing strange shadows all over
i cant tell which is real or just shadows keep moving
there do  you hear it thrashing through the underbrush
terror within the dark is hard to escape from

i must keep moving cant stop to rest oh dear God
help me save me the terror closes in on me i cant go on
my heart is pounding inside my chest the chase goes on
terror within the dark is hard to escape from

up ahead light shines through the trees i dash onward
knowing safety is beyond the closed doors salvation ahead
i throw the door open then slam it shut and bolt it tight
terror within the dark is hard to escape from

outside i hear the creature howl with rage at my escape
it has been defeated tonight but there will be other nights
other nights and other victims to be conquered but not me
terror within the dark is hard to escape from
