Requiem of the Music Angel

I dwell in solemn shadows

In the darkness down below

Five below your world of glamour

Five below your golden glow

In the tunnels long and winding

Where no others dare to go –

And my face you'll never know;

And my face you'll never know.

-

I can see you from my kingdom

Your sweet voice I clearly hear,

And I hear your blackest sorrows

And I hear your darkest fears.

You stand alone, and now I hear and

See you coming near –

For I dwell beyond the mirror;

For I dwell beyond the mirror.

-

I will take you through this darkness

And into my inner soul:

Past the shadows, dark and silent

Past the deep and murky shoal

Where joy and tears both mingle in

My heart, the empty bowl –

And my love consumes me whole;

And my love consumes me whole.

-

You asked to see too much of me,

And now you've gone too deep!

You now know where the ugliness

In my own heart does sleep!

You know the demon secret that

Your grotesque angel keeps –

And at my dark lyre, I weep;

And at my dark lyre, I weep.
