Silent Twilight



All hail the king of mischief and night
All hail the God of the twilight
The one who watches from within
The one who has always been

Broken promises
Empty dreams
Eyes full of sorrow
And bad memories

Tearing down the walls
Of grief and misery
You climb to the top
Only to fall farther than ever before

There is nothing at the bottom
Only coldness and death
Your eyes glaze back
As you are finally called back home

Home is where you were before
Before the climb to the top
Before the fall to the bottom
Before the first breath
And the last goodbye

Broken promises
Empty dreams
Eyes full of sorrow
And bad memories

Silence...
