Fear rides out this awful night
When lovers scream and take to flight,
Upon this awful night.
When fiends walk ‘cross this cursed land
While humans cower and accept commands,
Across this cursed land.

Fear rides out this loathsome day
When even heathens kneel and pray,
Upon this loathsome day.
Where primaeval beasts stalk mankind
No hiding place is there to find,
Across this cursed land.

Fear and trembling this horrid noon
Like lemmings walking to our doom,
Upon this awful noon.
When witches right upon the sky
On broomsticks hags are flying high,
Within this accursed land.

Fear rides through the early morn
Terror slinking through the dawn,
Upon this early morn.
Giant Saurians now holding court
Feed upon our fearful thoughts,
Within this accursed land.

Fear rides through the evil twilight
Where heroes stop, fall down, and cry,
Upon this evil twilight.
Carapaced fiends are on the move
As all our hopes we surely lose,
Within this accursed land.
