breathe in deep
smell these halls of hate
carve your name into these walls
before it is too late
cold and twisted
they resisted
what was I to do
all I ever wanted was
a fraction of the truth

walking in the shadows
of my blackened mind
lost inside this shallow
vanity of time

what if there's a God a hell and heaven
fire is the torment I must face
dying by the souls I have forsaken
no one's going to catch my fall from grace

(bleed on me)
watch me from your cage
as I rejoin my painful prime
(suffer and exhale)
you and I are relics
we provoke and we recline

walking in the shadows
of my blackened mind
angels crave my sorrow
sorrow they will find

what if there's a God a hell and heaven
fire is the torment I must face
dying by the souls I have forsaken
no one's going to catch my fall from grace

walking in the shadows
of my blackened mind
angels crave my sorrow
sorrow they will find

    General Commentmy favourite kamelot song, all three songs tell a story (listen to them in order, the music fits aswell) about a queen who killed virgins because she thought that it kept her young. More information can be found on this site

    General CommentOooh, I love this trilogy! The way the music just builds is amazing...And I've been able to creep my parents, and a couple of friends, out when they ask what the hell he's talking about. Elizabeth Bathory...There's a twisted individual.

    Anyway, great end to an album, great song, and Khan's range in it is spectacular! I love the fade-out, and 'interlude' section....

    General CommentThis is a frightening series, but very good songs.
    As a quick aside, Bathory was a countess, not queen.

    General CommentAll three songs are even better on their live DVD One Cold Winter's Night; When they play all 3 back to back...
    This one has got to be the best in the trilogy... definitely.
