Candles

Candles

Wandering in the footprints of death
To come to where the shadows lie

The light of evil beckons you
Do you dare to follow it?

The memories of ancient evil
Cruel death lies down below

The dark waters pull you in
To join that dead that never sleep

They fought much worse an evil once
The fell joined the dead

And here they stay, awaiting
Their dark purpose anew

Darker than night
More silent than stars

Fire burns swift
Though flame is low

Mesmerize the mind
Ensnare the soul

Join those who dwell
Far below

Enemy of enemy
joins those who walk against him

Though neither can see
What lies ahead

They seek your life
They seek your life

Beware the lights.
