Why can I not close my eyes,
And lie my soul down to rest?
As I briefly gaze into oblivion
My flesh and blood disincarnate
Into ashes and dust

In the face of the cosmic void
I'm rendered paralyzed

I damn this black anxiety
That tears at me from within
I'm not prepared for this destiny
Because I'm not ready to die

I will give them no compassion
Only infliction of pain
Around my neck the tension binds
Tightening my chains

In the dawn I'll take form as your shade
By the leave of the sun, all will fade
When I tuck you within my black wings
In death you will stand as a king

I denounce the faith of the hypocrites
And its decrepit book of belief
A tyranny penned by the privileged
Who lavish in spoils of gold

I weep in despair at the prospect
Of the fate of my godless endeavor
To decay in a festering crypt

[Solo: Paul]
