Black feathers brushing on my face

In this dark and coldly empty place

In this prison cell of broken dreams

Where all I ever hear are screams

Hark, can't you hear them too,

Those whose souls have long since fled

From their cold and broken beings

The husks that once breathed, that once bled

And I'm alone in this dark, dark world

In this prison cell of broken dreams

In this house of evil spirits

Uttering strangely human screams

Hark, can't you hear them too,

Those whose souls have long since fled

From their cold and broken beings

The husks that once breathed, that once bled

Lightning flashes 'cross this sky, showing up for miles

I just clutch to distant dreams of purely human smiles

Though the dreams are crumbled, as I know they'll always be

At least this future beckons at least the light I'll see

Hark, can't you hear them too,

Those whose souls have long since fled

From their cold and broken beings

The husks that once breathed, that once bled

This darkness settling round me

In my pyramid of light

And by the time they closed the door

My spirit had took flight

Hark, can't you hear them too,

Those whose souls have long since fled

From their cold and broken beings

The husks that once breathed, that once bled

Hark, can't you hear them too,

Those whose souls have long since fled

From their cold and broken beings

The husks that once breathed, that once bled
