Creature Feature: American Gothic

AMERICAN GOTHIC

If there’s nothing in the darkness
Then why do you lie awake
Something in the shadows
Is keeping you from sleep

What are you afraid of
Hiding in the night
Haunting figures appear
In the corner of your eye

Is death waiting to lash out
Or a ghost behind the breeze
A devil in the cornfield
Or a beast among the trees

Are those wretched raving ravens
All harbingers of your doom
Is the black cat crossing in your path
A prelude to your tomb

The sun falls like a guillotine
The dark comes alive with the unsavory beings

Lock the door
And run and hide
And hold your breath
And you just might
Survive the night

Your safety’s false
Your logic’s skewed
Now your complacent
Point of view
Will be the true
Death of you

Are there creaks in the floorboards
When you’re alone in the room
Are there footsteps in the attic
With each rising of the moon

Strange sounds in the distance
Whatever could they be
You’re powerless to the deadly
Foul things lurking unseen

The sun falls like a guillotine
The dark comes alive with the unsavory beings

Lock the door
And run and hide
And hold your breath
And you just might
Survive the night

Your safety’s false
Your logic’s skewed
Now your complacent
Point of view
Will be the true
Death of you

Chattering teeth and rattling bones
Out in the blackness your nightmares grow

Dreadful thoughts make your blood run cold
The witching hour has taken hold

Deep in the bleak recess of your soul
Is where the terror makes it’s home

If there’s nothing in the darkness
Then why do you lie awake
Something in the shadows
Is keeping you from sleep
