4- Fear of the DarkDon't let the darkness overwhelm youDon't let it touch your heartFor if you doNot once will it be seen againBare to the dark your soulAnd at once it will be takenHide it from the othersFor what is best for themThey know not of the battleYou fight with everydayYou know to keep it from themThe secret's safe with youBut don't let the darkness closerFor once you loose the fightYou'll loose more than you offeredAnd mercy he shall not takeYour heartYour soulYour lifeYour goalThe darkness shall consume them allWhen the day comesAnd you forgetThe promises you have madeLooming up aheadIs that shadow stalking youYou turn you head in fearAnd once again they can't defeat youWaiting, watching, wandering patientlyDarkness knows no timeIt will sit and wait untilYour time as servant endsOne day you slip upYou mentioned to your friendOf the dreams that haunt your shadowsConfused and scared they run offAnd darkness overcomes youConsuming all it can reachOne, you
