Man is,
Afraid of the unknown,
I don't know what the night brings,
When I'm alone

The lamp's on,
It's always been that way,
It's a way, I hope that things,
Will always stay

And I'm embarrassed to say,
That I'm still scared of the dark at my age,
It's not the monsters under my bed or in the wardrobe,
I just feel alone in the dark,
With the lights off and eyes closed

Now the world knows,
The world knows

In darkness,
I see shapes and beings, dancing on the walls
And in the corners of the ceiling

They surround me,
Like an army of ninja ghosts,
Waiting for me to sleep,
It's when they attack the most

That's when they attack the most

And I'm embarrassed to say,
That I'm still scared of the dark at my age,
It's not the monsters under my bed or in the wardrobe,
I just feel alone in the world,
With lights off and eyes closed

Now the world knows
The world knows

And I'm embarrassed to say,
That I'm still scared of the dark at my age,
It's not the monsters under my bed or in the wardrobe,
I just feel alone in the world,
With lights off and eyes closed

Man is,
Afraid of the unknown.
