As sure as light revealed this morning,
soon the daytime met the night.
And as I lie down in my bed,
the darkness lies down by my side.
The darkness wraps it's arms around me
as I choke and try to fight.
I start to push, I run away,
it pulls me back, I cannot hide..
I drag myself out from my room,
and pull the covers to the hall.
Instead of sleeping on that mattress,
I'd rather never sleep at all.
Instead of sleeping in that room
I'll take the ground on which I crawled.
Because there's monsters waiting for me
every time the darkness falls..
As I try to fall asleep,
the darkness follows me once more.
The darkness tries to swallow me,
I yell in panic on the floor.
"I cannot take this anymore,"
I shout while beating mother's door.
"There's monsters everywhere I look,
I can't escape this wretched horror!"
Sure enough my father answers,
"sleep outside so we may rest."
"We can't be troubled by your tantrums,
go and sleep out in the shed."
Though it's dark, and though it's cold,
and though the ground is quite a mess..
At least it's not inside that house,
this shed is where I sleep my best.
