Embrace of the Shadows


Children of the night, slipping through the cracks.
No home to belong to. No trails of a past.
Lost souls of a nightmare, hope is drifting from your dreams.
No longer caring for this life,
You're now sifting through the screams of the pains of the heartless,
The sorrows of the cold, the dreams of the hopeless;
The worries of the bold.

No time to believe that love will lead you home.
Set your soul aside, let it drift away.
Now's your time to behold the eerie truths of the world;
The world that cast you down from an angel's firm embrace,
To the demon's growl.
With fiery venom, they'll all spit out
The curses and names called in vain.

They throw their stones in hopes that one can't take
The attempts to increase one's share of pain.
Though you're down on your knees,
They'll try to cast you much lower,
But you know your times are already up;
As the shadows all open their arms,
This unwanted life will finally be over.
