Dream

The clock strikes midnight
The bell echoes through the hall
Surrounded by dark
Something is not right

An empty mansion
Sitting on top of a hill
On a dark and stormy night
Something is not right

A man in a top hat
The clock begins to fall
Alone in the moonlight
Something is not right

The man looks up with a gasp
He turns to run
A cry for help
Window breaks with a smash

The man plummeting to his doom
Falling alone to the end
No one could see this coming
And he’s gone with a flash
It all happens so fast
