Song Description

This suspenseful soundtrack piece sets up a mysterious and chilling mood in the introduction and carries it through into the opening chorus. Latin guitar melodies dance delicately over an unconventional dance-hall beat while the haunting vocals tell a story about monsters in shadows. The verses release tension with variations in the chord progression and rhythm pattern. The song climaxes in the interlude with over-driven guitar shots and drops off cleanly back into the hypnotizing drums and strings to conclude the song.

Story Behind the Song

The world we exist in is governed by the forces of good and evil. This song is about the manifestation of those evil forces: Dark spirits, ghosts, demons; whatever you wish to call them. As a child I was told not to be afraid because there wasn?t a monster to be found in the closet. And then as an adolescent I came to realize the monsters indeed weren?t in the closet. They were in fact everywhere and nowhere at the same time, thriving on fear, terror, pain and death. This song was my triumph over the wickedness that continues to plague this world.

In shadows, they linger
On fear, they thrive
Whenever you whisper
They hear your cries

Child wipe your tears these monsters aren?t for real
It?s just a dream, forget whatever you saw
Child wipe your tears
It?s just a dream

How can there be light if there is no darkness?
How can there be good if there is no evil?

In shadows, they linger
On fear, they thrive
Whenever you whisper
They hear your cries

Son face your fears. These monsters are for real
It?s not a dream, you got to win in this war
Son face your fears?
It?s not a dream?

How can there be light if there is no darkness
How can there be good if there is no evil

Can you feel them here
Whispering in your ear
Did you hear that sound
Oh God there all around

Rise above the enemy
Will your life to victory
And believe in your
Hope to carry on
Overcome the wickedness
Stand up proud and raise your fist
Till you feel the power
Coursing through your veins
