Quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
Closer now closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow
And quicker than flies
His arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes

For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight"

And I feel like I'm being eaten
By a thousand million
Shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning
