A Game

I spent my life searching for shadows
To stop them from haunting my mind
And those who have tried to release me
- I killed them and left them behind.

I promise I'll never surrender
I even crossed fire and ice
And twilight and danger and darkness
But tell me - did I pay a price?

There must be a thing I'm still missing
An artefact out there... or so...
I'm searching and fighting and chasing
And that's how the story will go.

I'm lost in a world of destruction
I'm lost in my own single fate
My life is a game never ending
I'm playing until it's too late.
