Something's coming
Something big
Something I can't stand

Dark as the ocean
Secret and cruel
Something I can't command

Something's waiting
Down a mugger's alley
To see what's on my mind

Take a deep breath
Start walking faster
It's dark, but I'm not blind

You never know
If I push at this wall
My hand could pass through

So

This cloud of unknowing
Could disappear too

It's only the future
