Night Shadows

Phantom figures in the dark

Shadows in the night

Floating through the trees below

With the strangest lights...

Appearing at the roadside turns

Or the corners of your eyes

Staring from the rear-view mirror

Black robed faceless terrors...

Chanting in some ancient tongue

Growing in your mind

Symbols etched in stone and silver

Diabolic rites...

If you see these blackened specters

Apparitions in the foggy mist

Say your prayers for they may follow

Who cross your path and haunt your dreams...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

It is said that shadowy figures are seen from time to time while traveling along the twisting roads of Devil's Canyon. These are said to be from robed cultists to ghostly specters.
