As a cancer on humanity,
Four centuries I have lingered,
Snatching forests tree by tree.
I, the nocturnal shadow,
Servant of the night,
Too long with only time as my companion.
This burning heart in dark silence,
Screaming for the lust of life,
With the moons eye ever watchful.
Like a vulture amongst the rotten,
Walking through these empty streets,
An empty heart with an empty purpose.
So much life has been taken,
So the dead can keep breeding,
Rivers of blood have flown,
So that I, can keep Lingering.
Watching ocean flow,
Watching cities grow,
While the mirror speaks of endless tragedies.
But yet so restless,
Could anything be still listening?
The night sky,
From the Burning light.
I don't want to be alone, anymore,
Please dawn set me free,
I crave, I crave for the sun.
To see the dawn and all it's glory,
To watch the sun, burn away the darkest shadow.
To see the sun, for the first time in four hundred winters.
To feel the sun, consume me.
None of all the beauties of this earth will ever be mine,
For all will start decaying by the vengeance of time.
Although this heart is beating, I know that I am cursed,
For I will never know love, & why it fucking burns.
With all my journeys of this world, still nowhere to call home.
In this godless savage garden, I always seem to stand-alone.
What good are all these beauties, with no one by my side.
The loneliness is killing me, I just want to fucking die.
I drop to my knees & scream in pain, as the sun starts to rise,
My lust for blood disperses, my flesh starts to set alight.
My weary soul transcends, as my chest starts to burst,
I feel my heart rising, as my body falls to dust.
What is this place I've come to, this tranquilness I feel,
There is beauty in the darkness, which has seen all that in which I've
Nevermore shall I see my beloved moon, but feel no need to mourn,
For now I stand with angels, in my slowly fading form.
