In the murky depths
Of the intense shadows
One stands out
In the dark, it yet glows

Devoid of a source
That causes it
It slithers with obstinate force
Blowing out all candles lit
The candles of hope

In the darkness, you grope
For a way out
Yet nor have you any hope
To escape alive
Nor any to strive

For the shadow is sinking in
Reaching its zenith
Yet creating no din
While you start to rot

Diminishing away, tearing apart
In pieces, this world you'll depart
And now as it takes over
Takes control
You feel naught but hued horror
It's on a deadly roll

Possessing you
Killing you
It's a part of you
And now, together,
You join the deathly murder

'Cause the shadows have declared
Rule upon your existence
No, they never cared
Fought all resistance

And now you're alone
Once again, solitude
Yet, the shadow's not gone
It lies deep inside you
Filling you, controlling you
And thus discontentedly
Overflowed with misery
You depart this world
Hand in hand
With the dangers unfurled;
And soon you loose sight...
To the shadows of the night…
