When the darkness falls

And the day slips away

There’s nothing you can do

To keep the demons at bay


As the day turns to dusk

And the night creatures roam

There’s nothing you can do

To keep them out of your home


As their screeches make you shiver

And those leeches make you quiver

Delight washes over their souls.
