about

This song followed me out of a dream and loves to haunt the unwary.

lyrics

Footsteps creeping down the hall
Shadows reaching from the wall
Children crying lost and small
And no one is there to hear

CHORUS:
Lost and alone and dark is the night
Old are the terrors that stalk the light
Harden your hearts to what may appear
This is no place for the children
This is a place full of fear

Shadows reach and slither free
Children crying hopelessly
The darkness gathers hungrily
And no one who cares can hear

Children crying all alone
As the dark begins to moan
Nowhere’s safe, not even home
When no one is there to see

CHORUS

As the dark inflicts its pain
Nowhere’s safe or even sane
Nothing will be right again
For blind are the ones who see

Nowhere’s safe enough to trust
Nothing’s right or even just
Footsteps creeping as they must
And no one knows why you fear

CHORUS
Nothing’s just or good or right
Footsteps creeping in the night
Shadows reaching with delight
And no one cares that you fear

Footsteps creeping down the hall
Shadows reaching from the wall
Children crying lost and small
And no one is there to hear
