if you walk on down
that darkened hallway
you cast your shadow aside

he is there to follow you
wherever you may roam
but he can never be inside

if you run on down
into the darkness
his likeness disappears

no more fun
for you and i
as darkness consumes the years

see, he can be no more
now that you’ve entered completely
just one thing to worry about

if you stay in the dark
and feel the walls
you will always find your way out

but step in the sun
where leaves are dried
and you can be sure he’ll reappear

standing beside you
a constant reminder
over your shoulder, there remains the fear

in my time of dying
