Red eyes in the darkness

Do warn me of a fate

Racing down a darkened road

Praying it’s not too late

I saw Mothman

Winter of ‘67

When that old bridge collapsed

To this day survivors say

In the aftermath

They saw Mothman

Why he stood before me

I’m trying to learn the truth

What tragedy’s about to fall

On me or you

I saw Mothman

There’s always something chasing me

Don’t know if it’s real or my anxiety

I can’t control beyond my grasp

Like the saying goes “Man Plans. God Laughs”
