And There Was Light (Illnath)

And there was light And the darkness that followed blinded my eyes The night made we trustworthy and hid all my lies I called the seventh of the eight and gave him my offer So cold were the feelings I bore inside after I'd lost her Sometimes I still can hear His voices calling, calling me from everywhere And now and then I feel my soul slowly slipping out of myself into his... Hell claws at my window and makes me forget To tell her of the deal and the conditions I met and now It's far too late to tell her what's going on here Somehow I'm almost looking forward to when this is over "I felt my ghost cross over, and knew he was near And across the river I could see him standing there" And there was light And the blackness that followed blinded her eyes The night drew her to me and we met in the dark And this "why am I here?" where the words she said A kiss told her responsible for her being dead She cried in silence and I wiped away her tears She felt my cold hand amplifying her fear She knew where she was and cursed her beloved And all of a sudden it all was over... Sometimes I still can hear His voices calling, calling me from everywhere And now and then I feel my soul slowly slipping out of myself into his hell "I know he's waiting there for me In his limbo between destination and reality"
