Arch Enemy – The Great Darkness lyrics

[Lyrics: Angela Gossow, Music: Michael Amott]

A greater darkness, my mind's possessed
Disillusioned, numb emptiness
(No hope) I feel a paralyzing fear
(No salvation) faking control
Their coldness hurt me beyond belief

Dominus beo spiritus

Will I burn?
Will I be free?
The great darkness consumed my soul

Diabolus libero spiritus

Blind my eyes, I hate the light
Despair, frustration, regret
Fighting - fighting for what?
Lies, your lies - I feel dead inside
My pain is all I leave behind

A shadow - the only light I followed
Transparent I am - like a ghost

[Lead - Michael]

A far cry from whom I wanted to be
I never found my place, my place nor peace

[Lead - Christopher]
