[Lyrics-Gene Adam]
[Music-Jon Schaffer/Bill Owen]

He's the creeper in the night
He's the reaper with a knife
He wears a mask to hide his face
He's always ready for the chase
Killing for the vengeance
Of his mothers death
He's got murder on his breath
Run from the creeper
Hide in the night
His knife is plunging deeper
He's got you wrapped up tight

Creeper in the night
Reaper With a knife
Creeper take your life
Reaper With a killing bite

Down in the lake
He's gaining his strength
His vision is blurred
His mind is obscured
From behind a tree
Or underneath your bed
He's looking for you
He'll cut off your head
Behind his mask
He lies in wait
His mind is obsessed
He's gone insane
Only to know the look in his eyes
The pain and the fear
And the tast of spite

Creeper in the night
Reaper With a knife
Creeper take your life
Reaper With a killing bite
