I am the darkness
I summon the rain,
call me lord,
and don't take it in vain.

You shiver,
you shake,
you quake before me,
begging, pleading
that you'll live till morning

Laying on the floor
having one last cry,
tearing at your hair,
and asking me

Don't question me!
I own you!
Even before you knew it!
You were mine!

As i watched you
and saw you
living so happily!
in ignorant bliss.

But now it's time to pay,
for all the lies you told,
for all the pain you've inflicted,
for all the lives you've stole.

this is a reckoning
that even hell cannot pay!
count this as your dying day!

I pull you close,
kiss your lips
and cut you down!

To the darkness,
to me....
