What do you think I am? Do you think I’m dreaming?
Don’t you know I know what it is you’re scheming?
Who did you think gave you the right
Hidden by the dead of night
To take the world and turn it upside down
When it should be round?

It seems I made it just in time
To use my reason and my rhyme
To save us from the evils of your mind


I will cast the spell

Be sure I cast it well
I will light a fire

Kindled with desire.


I’ll fill you with fear so you’ll know I’m here
And I won’t be treated like a fool
It’s no good you pretending there’ll be no happy ending
I’m alive and darkness is my tool


But when the night is over
And daytime steals your cover
The goodness of the morning sun
Will warm away what you have done
And leave you cold


I have no need for moonlight
You’re wrong to trust in sunlight
For I exist not just in storms
But in life itself, in so many forms
To leave you cold


I will leave you now but you won’t defeat me
You had best beware when you come to meet me

Love and truth will follow me
An army of reality
Brought from every corner of the world


You will never break the spell
I’ll summon all the fires of hell
And this is my advice for what it’s worth


Let us not begin

This fight we cannot win
Be sure you’re watching me
‘Cause all through your life
Every day and every night
You should know that

I’ll be watching you
