distress




they call him jack o' shadows
and he's never ever seen
it's only when he's gone
you know that he's been

he moves through the darkness
never in full daylight
comes into his own
only after midnight

he's that shadow down the alley
that shade of despair
though never ever seen
all know that he's there

by the cold chill in the bones
that shiver of fear
all indications that
suddenly he's near

and he lives on your discomfort
always trying to find
a person to distress
this vampire of the mind

and he feeds so very quickly
reaps emotions every one
oh so very quickly then
in a flash he's gone

they call him jack o shadows
he could be anywhere
it's only that spinal shiver
tells you that he's there
