We wait for you here

Beyond the world you know

We whisper in your ears

At night

During the day

Luring you closer home

 

We know your name

We know where you sleep

We know what you dream of

We know what you see

 

You do not see us

We are the shadows of your doubt

We linger in the dark

Waiting to hear a whimper from your mouth

 

We will let you see us on that day

Our shadows live close to your own

Join us in the walls and floors of your home

You will dwell forever

With us you’ll stay

 

We are not mean

We are not evil

We are restless souls

Never spoken of but always seen

 

Faceless shapes

Lingering shadows

We’ll pull you in

We won’t let you go

 

You’ll become one of us

You’ll become a haunting shape

You’re one of us now

Lure the next one to their fate
