Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's an old man living in the back of your woods tonight
You forgot he was even there, but you've never slipped his mind
He's living off of scraps of you you never knew you left behind
And as the sun goes down, he rises with a smile
Verse 2
He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see the writing on the wall
He'll never step out in the light
No, he's just biding time
And while you slumber, he's gonna come and take it all
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall
Verse 3
He knows you have the answers, but truth lies dusty on your shelf
And the sword that you could slay him with has become an ornament and nothing else
You could put him back down in his hole in the ground, but he knows you never will
He's been around so long you got used to the smell
Verse 4
He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see the writing on the wall
He'll never step out in the light
No, he's just biding his time
And as you slumber, he's gonna come and take it all
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall
Verse 5
He knows he'll never have your soul
But he will gladly rob you blind
While you're feasting at his table, he'll tie your hands and numb your mind
He'll take you farther than you wanna go
He'll keep you longer than you wanna stay
And it will cost you more than you ever thought you'd pay
Verse 6
He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see the writing on the wall
He'll never step out in the light
No, he's just biding his time
And as you slumber, he's gonna come and take it all
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall
Verse 7
He's waiting on the night
He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see, you don't see the writing on the wall
He's waiting on the night
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall
