Darkness is on the horizon
In my peripheral, I see it rising
Rising high, like the morning sun
Rising fast, it’s the only one
That can stop me now, I’m on my way
To lead myself well today
I try to let fear bounce off of me
But it comes closer, it’s all I can see
The darkness creeping in closer, so near
To take and ruin all I hold dear
It’s coming in hard, and way too fast
I’ve held it off so long, but at long last
It’s found me here, “safe” in my hole
Taken me out, stolen my soul
I’ve been stripped of what I so dearly need
I must go, I must disobey my creed
I’ve dragged myself to its dark cave
It swallows me whole, nothing good is saved
I’m a coward, a fool, who thought he could live
And an empty shell is all I have left to give.
Darkness is on the horizon, and if you see it, you’re done.
Exit Stage West.
