The story of the Mothman of Point Pleasant, WV has always intrigued me. Aside from being inspired by the movie "The Mothman Prophecies", I've read countless articles and watched documentaries surrounding the events that took place before the collapse of The Silver Bridge over the Ohio River. My interest turned into this song a few years ago and then inspired the theme for this EP.


I’m watching lines flash by on the highway
somewhere between Richmond and D.C.
I can feel that I am slowly fading
so is she, her memory feels like a dream

I come and go for just a moment
awakened in a place that I have never seen
the only light that is provided
are two red spots beneath the canopy of trees

now the car begins to stall
is there anyone at all

in Point Pleasant, West Virginia
how did I get here, and how long was I asleep
I need to find my way to Richmond
maybe ask this stranger standing in front of me

I met a man who says he’s seen me
the past three nights outside his home
but I swear I have just arrived here
he swears that we are not alone

in Point Pleasant, West Virginia
something’s watching in the dark
many claim that they have seen him
but one man knows his name by heart

last night I spoke with Indrid Cold in my hotel room alone
he told me secrets that I hold, and she will soon be coming home
have I lost all reality trying to solve this mystery

in Point Pleasant, West Virginia
over the river a bridge begins to sway
and forty-six with Christmas presents
fell to their death wondering if Jesus is the way
