In the dark and bleeding
With the shadows seething
There he stands alone
Fools of faith conspire
Questions of desire
That they never owned

Kings without their armor
Men without their honor
Spit out desecration
Pieces of a nation
Buried in the ground
Screams without a sound
Burn the castle down

In the end the children cried
That the jackyl surely lied
When he said "Please Listen all, do not look behind these walls"

Coffins drowned in roses
And the war he chose is fought inside the mind
Death becomes compelling
When the soul's for selling and the world is blind

In the maze he wanders
Looks about and ponders
Shadows mock and taunt him
And the ghosts that haunt him
Chain him to the ground
Screams without a sound
Burn the castle down

In the end the children cried
That the jackyl surely lied
When he said "Please listen all, do not look behind these walls"

Oohh

And does the pendelum toll
Against the side of the soul
When it fears the final moment is here?
Do you rage 'gainst the dark
Try to rewrite the part
Turn around and face what you fear?

What you fear
Oohh
What you fear
Yeah

He's seen it all before
Close your eyes and close the door
And the dreams the night's embrace
Slowly leave without a trace
