lyrics

PRISONER INSIDE THE NIGHT

On the darkest night, quiet footsteps haunt the halls.
In the absence of light, peaceful dreams crushed by hellish calls.
Cold hands covering burning ears, eyes shut tight from the sight of fear.
Slow pace moving to the door, heart racing shadows on the floor.
You cannot bend down, for fear of what’s below.
What lurks beyond the doorway, what evil waits for you?

Down in darkness, prisoner inside the night.

In a panicked mind, standing trembling too afraid to move.
A sound from behind, a tap on the window you turn to view.
Cold eyes staring in from the night, lit by a bolt from the sky.
Pallid skin waiting to be red again, nocturnal death just outside.
As you watch it raise back, foul clawed hands and smash them through the window, as the dark returns again.

Down in darkness, prisoner inside the night.

Chorus:
Death stalks about these rooms, outside a tempest looms.
Fear without light, prisoner inside the night.

As the shattered glass falls to the floor, you turn to grasp the handle of the door.
Outside lies mystery inside certain death.
Yet there’s no wait. Hesitation is gone - only flight can save your life.
Concentrate. Find a way to fight the fear defeat the fright!
You cannot slow now - shadows will not abide.
Escape toward the daylight away from deviant eyes.

Down in darkness, prisoner inside the night.

Chorus:
Death stalks about these rooms.
Outside a tempest looms.
Fear without light - prisoner inside the night.

Here in the darkness you cannot see the pale crazed regression of a long forgotten family.
Martense, become this entity - cannibal animals removed from humanity.
De-evolution through decaying halls, ruin in isolation as the shadows began to fall.
Nowhere for you to disappear, only death in the dark from a lurking fear.

Chorus:
Death stalks about these rooms.
Outside a tempest looms.
Fear without light - prisoner inside the night.
