father, where's my gun?
i hear the hunt has begun
so let me go it alone
i need no one
i need no one

but, oh, god, now here it comes
and it's too dark to aim the gun
the clicking gets faster, faster, faster
once again i'm on the run
and i hear you say, oh, my stubborn son
i know that you said you need no one
but you're in danger, danger, danger
headed to oblivion

well, i followed the hunt fast as i could
through many weathers into this wood
took one shot in the dark
with a silver bullet, silver through heart

and now, god, oh, here it comes
and it's too dark to aim the gun
the clicking gets faster, faster, faster
once again i'm on the run
and i hear you say, oh, my stubborn son,
i know that you said you need no one
but you're in danger, danger, danger
headed to oblivion

but wait one second, father
i didn't come this far
for it to end like this
i'm gonna take this darkness and split it wide open
illuminate all shadows above and beyond
above and beyond
and my enemies show their face, face to me

show your face to me
show your face to me
be you my friend or enemy
show your face to me
i do not fear the darkness
i do not fear the darkness
i do not fear no more
oblivion
oblivion
oblivion

    General CommentBarguest - (Yorkshire. Henderson.) A creature of something the same kind as the bogy beast. It sometimes appears in a human form, but generally as an animal. In the fishing villages, a barguest funeral is the presage of death. the barguest in whatever form has eyes like burning coals; it has generally claws, horns and a tail, and is girdled with a clanking chain.
