"Poisonous Shadows" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
How much pain, do you need to feel
How much shame, do you have to conceal
There is no sunshine, just endless nights
Nobody's there, nobody cares when you cry

Is it my face you see?
Do I haunt you in your sleep?
On your hands and knees when you crawl
Through your nightmares

When there's no more grace
Does your heartbeat start to race?
Crawling everywhere in the dark
Poisonous shadows

How many secrets, do you keep inside?
How many sins, do you have to hide?
The haunting masses, have blackened the sun
You'll pay for everything you've done
One by one

Is it my face you see?
Do I mock you in your sleep?
On your hands and knees when you crawl
Through your nightmares

When there's no more grace
Does your heartbeat start to race?
Crawling everywhere in the dark
Poisonous shadows

Is it my face you see?
Do I haunt you in your sleep?
On your hands and knees when you crawl
Through your nightmares

When there's no more grace
Does your heartbeat start to race?
Crawling everywhere in the dark
Poisonous shadows

Is it my face you see?
Do I haunt you in your sleep?
On your hands and knees when you crawl
Through your nightmares
When there's no more grace
Does your heartbeat start to race?
Crawling everywhere in the dark
Poisonous shadows
(It's like I woke up and she was right there
You know, I can almost touch her
Although she's been gone for years now
I can feel her
I can feel her watching me)
