Hallway 03:40
Along this hallway Countless doors stand still in space Beyond this hallway Nothingness will dominate In this place
Noises 08:27
Can't seem to find The other door Gather my mind What is it for Stillness walking Where I came from Umbra lurking What is to come Cleaning again Clock ticks slowly Cannot explain The end to be The sounds in the wall The cries through the floor Resound through the hall Are they all to blame? The cries in the wall The sounds through the floor Will not cease to be Are they all to blame or me No time to rest Locking all space Don't know what's best Keeping my pace
Touching the knob, you decide to turn Holding your light, you decide to go Rubbing your eyes, you try to see Into the dark, you descent the stairs To go below, you must not look above You try to find the thing that they call 'love' Keep moving on, you will not look behind Until the day you lose your way and mind Red paint on the wall Red stains on the floor 1 2 3 4 5 6, you count as you descend the stairs Lalalalalala, you sing as you walk down the stairs Sweat down your face as you miss a step What time it is, you no longer care Trying to read writings on the wall But you cannot understand the pain Hearing a noise, you have to stop Blowing out the light, but it was not you When the world turns into blackness Closing your eyes, you call out her name The portrait of her is still and calm With nothing to say, she bathes in red The gathering of the ghosts around With nothing to say, they dance through the night
Volition 10:27
Run away, it's not too late now Nothing ties you here to this place But is there anything you want In the empty city outside Leave this home, it's not too late now Nothing binds you here to this place Do you fear her hatred for you Or is it the blackness outside Will you choose to run away tonight? Run away, it's not too late now You have seen it all with your eyes Walk outside into the forest Through the shadows back to the town Leave this home, it's not too late now The wind sweeping through the nightfall Soon the earth will be one colour Still you have no will to go out Will you never choose to leave this place? Nothing outside Only demise Shadows crawling Blackbirds singing No one will care For none out there I will stay
Stay 06:42
The time has come I will not go Feel no sorrow I will stay with you This is my fate So I will not cry You are my home I will stay with you The wind has blown The night is here The Dark is on his way tonight Stay with me, won't you?
