It's the gathering of the evils
haunting my nights,
speeding life won't lose them,
they've taken all my lights.
They hide and lurk and scour the earth,
they watch me from a distance.
Their eyes setting my clothes on fire,
they are immune to my resistance.
I continue with a pounding chest,
feeling rushed, hearing them there.
Who else should know,
will see the burning they are causing here?
They demand so much from all of me,
they boil my blood and blister my skin.
They consume my every thought,
and fill my mind with evil sin.
They rob me of my precious sleep,
and turn my eyes a gray,
they suck the life from every vein
and wash my hope away.
