    For he did not know what crossed the path of his dreams
    A greater darkness as a nightmare seems
    Let it be the light of the mind shines bright
    To push through the fear that grows in the night

    The light shined and pierced the darkness thick
    To regenerate it would be quick
    It grew in power, it grew in size
    For he could not believe his eyes

    It held him, his gaze did not break
    It shook with anger, bade the ground to quake
    He turned to run and found he could not
    Fear held him in that very spot

    Would death come before the pain?
    Would he know happiness again?
    This thing of fear and darkness did not say
    For it was killed by the glory of day

    What it is to be darkness

    To know cold ever hour
    The hunger growing to devour

    The essence gone from shapeless form
    Touch of light painful, no warm

    Souls shattered like fragile glass
    Just as many in the past

    Darkness knows all the fears
    Darkness hears crying, feels tears

    Darkness doesn't feel sadness or woe
    Darkness will never let you go
