Light comes through a crack in the door
Tight like a cold hand of steel
Hands that petrify in the air
Sweet tension caught on my breath
Watch every shape that escapes
Speak to hear the sound of your voice
Sit in the corner with your back to the wall
Your mask of fear is shrinking fast
You stand on borrowed time, your sweating palms and chilling brow
Freeze until the noise decays, a shuffle from behind a door
Eyes will grow accustomed to the dark, a stifled scream that won't come out
Don't fear the stranger within
I see the stranger within
I am the stranger within
