Come wind
Come snow
Come winterland
I have resigned myself to death
Come will to show the hidden hand
So I can draw my final breath
You could take me higher
So you said and I trusted you
I may be a liar, but betrayal lies on you

I can feel when the journey ends
Final call for a last defence

Darkness come tonight
I have no fear of what you hold
Darkness come alive
You are the stories I've been told

I possess the power
Of survival in the cold
Life is like a flower
As it stumbles out of fall

We all know when our time has come
This is where I will linger on

Darkness come tonight
I have no fear of what you hold
Darkness come alive
You are the stories I've been told

Darkness come tonight
Nothing can take my faith away
Darkness come alive
Life fades to black from silver grey

    General CommentContinued from my comment on Interlude II: Un Assassinio Molto Silenzioso (It is crucial to read that comment to understand the song meaning of The Black Halo)...
    A defiant Ariel resigns himself to death. He denounces Mephisto as a liar and traitor, and challenges him. He no longer fears the eternal darkness that inevitably awaits. He resolves to live a life of purity and goodness like Helena did, even though he knows it is too late for him to escape damnation. He embraces righteousness, not for any reward-there is no hope of that- but simply to be righteous.

    General CommentAriel seems to be mourning the loss of Helena and giving up (Come wind, come snow, come winter land, I have resigned myself to death) and blaming Mephisto for it (You could take me higher so you said I trust in you - I may be a liar but betrayal lies on you), and then suddenly realising how he can still carry on even though he thought he's done for (I possess a power of survival in the cold - life is like a flower as it stumbles out of fall)
