A stirring sound
Screams from within
Terror grips my gaze
Where have I been?
Wiping sleep from my eyes
A fading presence
Where have you gone?

A room in disrepair
Frozen in silence
She lies motionless
Blood stained sheets and lives
Throbbing pain
A growing fear
Between gasps of hope
I pray the end
Darkness descends
A shadow within
How did we get here?
What’s left to live for?
Pushing on to survive
Incomplete, all is lost
She awakes, dead alive

Lift my head
Find my strength
The air is heavy
Thick with fear
Gripping cursed flesh
As Death lingers
Do not waste your tears
Cold, dead eyes
Vacuous, I am
Spiraling groveling
Succumbing to the void
Here and now make my stand

It’s all coming into focus. As clear as death can be, fear lives on. They livethrough fear, for death is neither the end nor the beginning. My mind is attuned. Ifeel her presence again—a weightless existence. I know what I must do. I know...
They walk among us
Breathless, bruised, and battered
Soulless, torn, and tattered
We live in shadows
Never safe from ourselves
They walk among us

Embrace the end times?
Are we forsaken?

Be quiet now, do not make a sound. I can feel her approaching with a deathly moan. My senses are failing, my nerves fraying. There she stands with a blank staredevoid of emotion and perception. She is soulless, yet still beautiful. Can she feel anything? Does she suffer?I must release her.
My blood runs cold. Breath is shallow. I’ve lost so much. Death rules the day.

Silence shatters meaning, nothing’s left, my love is gone
Taken by the darkness, hope is fading in my eyes
We live in the shadows
And die by the gallows
Fueled by our sorrows
No hope for tomorrow
She left without warning, unforgiving, heartless creatures
Loathing this existence in the distance between life and death
Tearing at my being, senseless evil, burn it down
I know what I must do, end the suffering and take her life

She’s at peace
No going back
A love once lost
A life transformed
Death rules the day
Death rules the day
