This is the sonnet of the wretched
Can you hear their screams?
Your prayers won't be heard
They will rise
When daylight dies they come and bring an abrupt end to your sinful life
There's nothing you can do to stop them now, it's too late
Just run and hide and hope they will never find you until it's over and they're gone
You think this is hell? You don't know the half of it,
And this is just the beginning of the end for you
There's nothing sacred here, Everything you once loved has been defiled
There's only pain, and sorrow
They bring the end
And there's nothing that can save you from this cruel fate
But it's your fault, it is you that brought them
They felt the presence of your blackened heart
And smelt the stench of your abject existence
They've come to cleanse your soul of it's affliction
You can't repent because it's far too late
Just wait until they have you in their grasp
Now you will feel what it's like to be in hell
And your only company will be the horde
This is now the end your soul is cleansed your mouth is stitched your eyes are blind
And your blackened heart ceases to beat anymore,
Now they have gone. Disappeared without a trace.
This is the sonnet of the wretched
Did you hear their screams?
Your prayers were not heard
They have cleansed all sin and evil
Lay to rest

    A sonnet (which the artist) didn't spell corectly,
    Is the olde english equivilant of a ballad.

    Not some demonic force.

    "the wretched" is an obvious referance to demonic
    Forces.
    Who in every aspect of biblical teachings, hunt, kill, tourture
    And devour the souls of men.

    Well if you pay attention to the lyrics than you will be able to understand that the sonnets are the ones who eat the people who are unwarned and that the sonnets only attack at night

    Sonnet (spelled correctly)
    1. Noun
    -prosody . A poem, properly expressive of a single, complete thought, idea, or sentiment, of 14 lines, usually in iambic pentameter, with rhymes arranged according to one of certain definite schemes, being in the strict or italian form divided into a major group of 8 lines (the octave) followed by a minor group of 6 lines (the sestet), and in a common english form into 3 quatrains followed by a couplet.

    Wretched
    1. Adjective
    Characterized by or attended with misery and sorrow.

    Ok, now that we know the definitions, let's put the words together, nnn?

    Sonnet (basically a song, ballad, or poem) of the wretched (meaning damned, pretty much)

    Anyway, so that describes the song enough, in essence.
    In more detail, if you read the song's lyrics, it's about a person who died recieving their final judgement (and from the looks of it, not a good one) and being sent to hell. There simple, nnn? Now just eenjoy the damn song, please. Thank you.
