In the middle of the night
Where one universe ends
I see that shadow
At the edge of the room
Where your darkness descends
I see a story lurking in your long ago
3 AM on the clock
A voice too hoarse to speak
Tonight I will only listen
As shadow whispers
Your stories of the damned, they reek
Through the ugly footboards of reason
Remember the dead you killed?
Each time in my sleep
Remember each loved one lost?
And tears shed inside my head
For the unlived who creep?
I always wondered what each dream cost
But tonight I won’t let you collect
You can suffocate my head
Spread fear in the black
I will endure for now, I will even smile
Soon on the emptiness of this bed
The flicker of my light will be back
