Out for a stroll late at night
The moon show's only but a sliver
You hear a sound
And you instantly are filled with fright

You take off running
Your feet won't stop moving
You keep glancing over your shoulder
What's there?! Who's that!

Fear of the dark
The unknown, the unexpected
Without vision, without sight
Everything is a danger in the night

Fear of the dark
The unknown, the unexpected
Without vision, without sight
Everything is a danger in the night

The night air is calm, it's dead
You can't help but feel
The familliar sense of dread

Every alley is the home
Of a murderer
Of a rapist
Of a thief

Every whispering wind is a danger
Every branch crackling is a gun
And god forbid that you
See another person

Fear of the dark
The unknown, the unexpected
Without vision, without sight
Everything is a danger in the night

A seventh sense, paranoid?
Danger lurking in the void
Halt! Who goes there!
Evildoer show yourself!

All is silent and you panic
Run fast flee far away!
Keep those feet pounding!
Until the break of day

Fear of the dark
The unknown, the unexpected
Without vision, without sight
Everything is a danger in the night

Fear of the dark
The unknown, the unexpected
Without vision, without sight
Everything is a danger in the night
