The shadows follow me
They hold me within their grasp
Hiding me from hungry eyes
I’m a silhouette of a man
Forgotten before I’m ever known
Dying as I live my life
It is lonely here in this darkness
I try and sleep the pain away

In the darkness, hear me cry
In the darkness I live to die
In the darkness, I will wallow
In the darkness, the shadows follow

My hopes and dreams lie dead
Beneath a veil of black
I know death lurks nearby
Watching me... waiting for me...
I’ve tried a million times
To find a place to hide
No matter what I do
The shadows will follow

No emotion inside of me
Everything is so obscure
I cannot tell what is real

The sun begins to fade away
As the music slowly dies
I dream of you as I fade away
