Abney Park – The Shadow Of Life lyrics

Still I push this boulder up this rocky hill
If I lose my footing this rock will kill
Perpetual dusk has me dimly lit
So I can't see the top or know how far it is

Now life is a constant and death is a beast
Every time it's been fed it's presence's increased
I feel it's wings and it's eyes bore my neck
This pressure has turned me into a wreck

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

It's a cold and a hollow and lonely life
I've seen anguish and anger, fear and strife
Now the darkness comes and it takes my pride
But I've learnt to face the darkness in my stride

And I've felt it's teeth pierce through my neck and back
I've felt my skin rip and I've heard my bones crack
And if I have strength left we'll soon see
For the shadow of life has eaten me

Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Well now comfort and security leave stride by stride
If I could see some way out I'd throw away my pride
But I can't go back and my death lies ahead
And the end of this life fills me with dread

Still I push this boulder up this rocky hill
If I lose my footing this rock will kill
Perpetual dusk has me dimly lit
So I can't see the top or know how far it is

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
