The shadows of the night
Are unleashed again
Where their greed begins
The end is near
A morbid hunger for blood
Lies in their cold black eyes
They've come to take ouur lifes away

One by one they died
A massacre that took all night
They had no chance, it was no fight
You can't kil what has been killed before
They died...

With shadows on its tale
He steppedThrough the portal
Locked the door and ate the key
With his life they took their way to freedom
And be became the final keeper of the key

    great song :).

    I love the way sharon's voice and robert's voice interchange. Like a voice from heaven interchanges with a voice from hell. Too bad Robert doesn't grunt no more. Looks like all the bands that used to (besides WT, Epica, for example) stopped doing so as soon as they got too popular. But, beside that, it's also very destructive for your vocal tracts :P.

    this song kind of resembles enter on the same album, because of "unleashed again" and here/near rhyming. I would guess that it's off of some book, probably a vampire book. i was thinking of "I am Legend" because the movie was out a few weeks ago but it kind of seems different so I don't think it's that. It could be something political too, with protesters and bad ideas and such. Gotta go!
