Darkness had consumed me,
So darkness I became.
I sold my colors to the sea demons,
So that I may live in vain.
Through blind eyes I could feel the rain,
See the pain before it ever came.
could hear the sepulchral symphony,
Unerringly feel the delusion of my ways
Darkness I am, So darkness you’ll become,
Antiquity always reiterates.
In tuned with darkness my colors are dimmed
No smile forthright ,
No righteousness within.
I captured your heart
Twisted and broke it.
You managed to love me somehow still hopeful.
You can’t heal the dead
And you can’t fix what’s hopeless.
Blood replacing tears stream down my cheeks...
Pain deeper than salty liquid remains blood deep.
Twisted gut and wrenching heart,
Wish I could retract and repeat...
Hurting you more than it’ll ever hurt me
I’ve become complacent and accepted the real me.
My colors were once beautiful shining and bright..
But I sold my soul for passions of one night..
I could never be what you need,
not in this life.
Incapable of love, my virtue was slain...
And across my heart there is an imprinted name.
Only that name can release this curse..
But the name is fabricated and nothing burns worse..
I release the best thing I’ve ever had
I don’t have the strength to love you back..
Darkness has consumed me
In darkness I will remain...
With the inkling I have left I’ll use it to push you away...
Out of the darkness you’ll remain
Never join this brigade..
Darkness has consumed me..
Alone in darkness I remain.
