Howling winds keep screaming round
And the rain comes pouring down
Doors are locked and bolted now
As the thing crawls into town

Straight out of hell
One of a kind
Stalking his victims
Don't look behind you, Nightcrawler

(CHORUS)
Beware the best in black, Nightcrawler
You know he's coming back, Nightcrawler

Sanctuary is being sought
Whispered prayers a last resort
Homing in it's cry distorts
Terror struck they know they're caught

Straight out of hell
One of a kind
Stalking his victims
Don't look behind you, Nightcrawler

Beware the beast in black, Nightcrawler
You know he's coming back, Nightcrawler

As night is falling
The end is drawing near
They'll hear
Their last rites echo on the wind

Huddled in the cellar
Fear caught in their eyes
Daring not to move or breathe
As the creature cries
Fingernails start scratching
On the outside walls
Clawing at the windows
"Come to me" it calls
Atmosphere's electric
As it now descends the stairs
Hiding in dark places
So futile from it's glare
Death comes in instance
As they hoped it would
Souls ascend to heaven
While it feasts on flesh and blood

Straight out of hell
One of a kind
Stalking it's victims
Don't look behind you, Nightcrawler

Beware the beast in black, Nightcrawler
You know he's coming back, Nightcrawler (2x)

He's going to get you
Beware of the beast
Nightcrawler
