Lyrics

Down, down, down, where the gloom is deeper
Could have sworn that I saw a figure
Standing over a grave forgotten
While the wind seemed to gently whisper

To me, through me
Words I long to hear
It told me

“You don’t have to confess your sins
The Shadow King already knows them
Feels so good if you just give in
You can’t resist the Shadow King”

Slow at first was the transformation
Lassitude flavoured isolation
Once absolved of my sleep and hunger
Can I start to embrace the thunder

Truly, duly
Words I always hear
He tells me

“You don’t have to confess your sins
The Shadow King already knows them
Feels so good if you just give in
You can’t resist the shadow...”

Run, run, run, run
Away, way, way
Another waste of
Another day
Run, run, run, run
Away, way, way
Another waste of
Another day

I may still walk amongst the Living
But I can’t feel what they’re feeling
Words no longer hold so much meaning
Lo! the Damned do not bother screaming

Silence, violence
Only thing I hear . . .

“You don’t have to confess your sins
The Shadow King already knows them
Feels so good if you just give in
You can’t resist, you can’t resist
You can’t resist the Shadow King”
