Death! It lies in wait,
The final act before the curtain falls,
The slow creep towards eternity,
The ball it rolls slowly downwards,
Towards the infinite fall.
Death! The cruelest trick,
What happens when the lights go out,
When the soul departs,
When the switch is flicked,
Up to down, on to off.
Death! No one can see,
It waits breathing over your shoulder,
It lurks behind you eager,
It decides when to pounce,
To devour you forever.
Death! Death! Death!
The word sends a chill as cold as ice,
Pray if you want, hope for more,
Close your eyes,
Let death take you to his door.
