In the darkness there is watching eyes,

 

Planning the best way to have someone die,

 

Watching you walk,

 

Memorizing how you talk,

 

Moving as a living shade,

 

Ready with a hungry blade,

 

What are his thoughts?

 

Is there a battle of morality being fought?

 

Where are his angels and devils?

 

Void of both he is on another level,

 

Of human drive,

 

He has the insectoid mentality only to thrive,

 

At the price of bloodshed,

 

As he snuffs out lives as they sleep in bed,

 

He never had a single doubt,

 

That his victims would get at least one shout,

 

For if you were withn sight,

 

He had you dead to rights,

 

Your body would be bleeding in a ditch,

 

Giving the occasional twitch,

 

As he counts his green stacks,

 

Payment for a knife in the back,

 

Just another job for him,

 

In seas of blood he does swim,

 

Spilled by his hand,

 

As he stalks this land
