Nighttime, alone
Wander with nowhere to go
Sit on deserted stone, adrift
Afraid to go home
A beast mundane, no less to dread
Suspicion haunting, can’t forget
Walk soft my friend, you’ve crossed the line
And now the hunt begins

Take you up, I’ll make you pay
My castle’s kingdom
I make the rules, now come and play
Pay for sins unearned
Punishment, it’s always due
Rights forsaken
No one left to shelter you
They’ll never say a word

Smash the skull, the hammer’s gone
Deadly silence
Pain for two, now saved for one
Delivery awaits

From the dark flows life

Water stains against the wall
Read them close, watch them fall
Hide away beneath the ground
Life runs out, you’re never found
But kick that line beneath your heel
The floodgates burst, the monster’s real

I don’t know what tales you’ve heard
What in the blackness there might lurk
The sword you dream to free your mind
Yet never see the bloody knife

Hand in the dark, rot in the grin
Drawing into the black
Throat locked, can’t scream, floating away
Waiting for my mind to snap
Blinded, reaching, grab for life
Frozen, rotten flesh
Crawling, stumbling, gasp for breath
Panic, all that’s left

Hunted day and night, can’t get away
Terror bursting, what can one mind take?
Running, black, unchained
Tasting the fear and smelling decay
Praying I’ll live to see another day

Make it to the light
Crawl, that’s alright
Make it to the light
Up all night
Make it to the light
