Looming shadows drawing near
Darkness borne on wings of fear
Foot-steps echo close behind
Conjured spectres plague your mind
Lurking in the endless night
Stalking you as you take flight
As your nerve breaks start to run
Race of Death has now begun
Icy breath, spine-chilling touch
Blood runs cold, cadaver’s clutch
A tightened grip, you can’t break loose
You’re hanging in a rigid noose
Your chest is tight, your heart expands
You’re clawing at those vice-like hands
You know your heart can’t take the strain
You’re blinded by its bursting pain
You feel your soul is fading fast
Your life’s events are flashing past
There is no need to struggle now
You know this pain will end somehow
With open arms embrace Death’s bliss
You can’t escape your Nemesis
