Track Name: Dead of Night
I went out walking again
These dark roads that never end
I only know how to avoid the light
A shadow follows behind
This burning wells up inside
A broken heart in the dead of night
The terror tries to give chase
But I'm not running away
I have accustomed myself
To everything this life dealt
There is a poison within
Stabbed with sharp needles and pins
The only thing left to fear
Is living in my own skin


Get back!
These thoughts are not my own
I face the bitter cold
And wash their misery from me
Let go!
Of what I cannot control
The hand that's gripping my soul
Is obsession


Caught myself dreaming again
Of a life that I never lived
Sick delusions of a tired man
Oh, how I wanted to break
With such an anger unslaked
I was a gun with a hired hand
If it's coming for you
Well then, it's after me, too
It knows my name and my face
It knows the time and the place
There is a figure that lurks
It wields a madness, berserk
Vigilant and alert
I feel it coming for me


Get back!
These thoughts are not my own
I face the bitter cold
And wash their misery from me
Let go!
Of what I cannot control
The hand that's gripping my soul
Is obsession
