King Diamond – Shapes Of Black lyrics

[Diamond / Diamond]

I? M dressed in black, with my stick and hat
So this is the end, where it all will begin

Shapes Of Black on the floor
Shapes Of Black behind every door

They keep sucking on the light until
There is no more light to find in here
Hello reality, goodbye to my sanity

Shapes Of Black on my bed
Shapes Of Black all around my head

Shhhhhh? They are here?
Can you hear them breathe? Listen

There? S a spider on the wall
Watching shadows as they crawl
Is the Darkness the only way, for the other side to enter our life?
Ah-Ah-Ah I see them Ah-Ah-Ah I feel them
Ah-Ah-Ah I see them Ah-Ah-Ah I feel them
Closer and closer? Human shapes made from the Dark
I see a black moth, fighting for its life
In the flame of the last candle that I have

[Solo: Mike]

Shhhhhh? One of them is really close? Can you feel it?
Can you hear it?

Shapes Of Black on my bed
Shapes Of Black all around my head

[Solo: Andy]

Shapes Of Black, they try to kill my flame
Shapes Of Black, Ah they? Re driving me insane

So little time? So little light? So little time? Light
? Phhhh? No more light?
