A pumpkin serves as my head
and my bones arewood (His bones are of wood)
Through famine and plague
on these fields I stood (On thosefieldshestood)
Stood protecting
Forced to be rejecting
what I fear the most of
all in this world
Blood boiling
Heart rate speeding
as the devils of theclouds
are circling ahead.

I’d kill to go to Hell
the day I die (On thedayhe dies)
Through fire and flame
I’m sure they can’t fly (Sure they cannot fly)
I’ll burn away
from misery
Away from crying
myself to sleep at night
every damn night
Skin scorching
Brains erupting
But the devils of the clouds
will finally be gone

And then when I close my eyes
nightmares unfold in my dreams
Dead black eyes terrorizing my mind with
Agonized screams
I don’t care about you or your pity
I’m just singing these songs to kill some pain

On the eighth day our Lord
created pain
Just like a venom injected directly
into your vein
I may well be a junkie
A crippled, screwed-up, sickly, trembling, hapless and pathetic pain junkie
Let’s seehow far down I can sink

And then when I close my eyes
nightmares unfold in my dreams
Dead black eyes terrorizing my mind with
Agonized screams
I don’t care about you or your pity
I’m just singing these songs to kill some pain

Hey Death, is that You?
That shadow ascending from this sea of ghosts
The lonely wave on this lake of blood
Hey Death, where are your wings?
Where are your beak and claws?
Why aren’t you striking down, but rising up?
Please let me feel your cold embrace
And make me understand. What killed me in the end?
«Not thecrow,» you say
«Not thecrow, but the wraith
The wraith behind it’s mask,»
You pull me under, then you
whisper ever so soft:
«You couldn’t drown me
You couldn’ tdrown your fears
You couldn’t drown me
You couldn’t drown your fears
You couldn’t drown your demons»

I couldn’t drown my demons (Wish I could drown my demons)
Now the demons they’re drowning me (I couldn't drown myself)
In this Sea of Ghosts

And then when I close my eyes
nightmares unfold in my dreams
Dead black eyes terrorizing my mind with
Agonized screams
I don’t care about you or your pity
I’m just singing these songs to kill some pain

And then when I close my eyes
nightmares unfold in my dreams
Like a curtain of blackvelvet
smothering me
An eternity’s all tha twe’re given
Close your eyes, go to sleep, mi amore, let me die
