In the dark and bleeding
With the shadows seething
There he stands alone
Fools and faith conspire
Questions of desire
That they never owned

Kings without their armor
Men without their honor
Spit out desecration
Pieces of a nation
Buried in the ground
Screams without a sound
Burn the castle down

In the end the children cried
That the jackal surely lied
When he said, "Please listen all
Do not look behind these walls"

Coffins drowned in roses
And the war he chose is
Fought inside the mind
Death becomes compelling
When the soul's for selling
And the world is blind

In the maze he wanders
Looks about and ponders
Shadows mock and taunt him
And the ghosts that haunt an'
Chain him to the ground
Screams without a sound
Burn the castle down

In the end the children cried
That the jackal surely lied
When he said, "Please listen all
Do not look behind these walls"

And does the pendulum toll
Against the sign of the soul
When he feels the final moment is near?
Do you rage 'gainst the dark?
Try to rewrite the part
Turn around and face what you fear
What you fear? What you fear?

He's seen it all before
Close your eyes and close the door
And the dreams that nights embrace
Slowly leave without a trace
