Creeping, Creeping

it walks through the remains
footprints compacting
and yet the ashes still clinging

clinging, clinging
clinging to you

hands can only be washed
so many times
before ghosts get upset

upset, upset
upset at you

screaming is only effective
if someone can hear you
and no one is around to help

help, help
help for you

mouths wag, and flap
but you should pay attention
when they ask why?

why, why
why would you?

sneaking through the underbrush
it's form is ever shifting
all it wants is to keep creeping

creeping, creeping
creeping up on you
