The Deep Dark Depths

Ever had the feeling
You're being watched by many eyes?
Ever had the notion
You're in for a big surprise?

Well, you might be right
You might be wrong.
But we'll soon see
'Cause I'm joining the throng.

You step forwards into total darkness.
Then voices start to shout.
"Who's there?" you cry!
You know someone's about.

You reach for your scabbard
To find nothing's there.
You look around in horror.
Now you are in despair.

Finding the courage inside you,
You lift one more foot.
Then bats fly overhead.
So, for a minute, you stay put.

Then, in an instant,
You find yourself on the floor.
Nothing is left.
You are no more.
