In The Valley of Shadows and Death
I was born in the Valley of Shadows and Death,
They say I'm alive,
Just scars I wont forget.
I remember that kid,
An orphan that just wanted to die.
They took him to the woods,
Murdered him with a scythe.
We all have our demons and horrors to defy,
Our lust and our hate to recognize.
Save me from the only one I've ever known,
Save me from the pain of my yesterdays.
They crawl in my bed in the middle of the night,
They scream and they cry,
Saying it will all be alright.
If I let you in yo'd just want out.
There's no one left to cry for us now.
I can't do this on my own...
