And soon the darkness will engulf me
It's always brightest near the end
Now your hurtful words can't touch me
Any more, I can't be hurt again
Take away your tears of sadness
I don't need them any more

Life's mourning sorrow of regret
Cannot save me from the edge
My death lies waiting round the corner
Like a dear forgotten friend
Too late your song of silence haunts me
Like falling rain in the midst of June

I don't care what knives have sought me
I'm now beyond their wretched reach
This world cost all I cared for
I'd have given my very soul
But it wasn't enough to save me
Knowing the secret from beyond the veil
