Desperate in the Darkness

Desperate in the darkness, the dread and horror unseen
The fiery flick of the match, a world wet with gasoline

Fear the future, swallowing humanity's soul
The human spirit, bears a rotting hole

Distant eyes, shine
Anxious for armageddon, all in good time

Heaven beckons, in the afternoon sky
We waste away, with this wishful lie

Careless laughter, nailed to the scorched ground
Death smiles in silence, whispering our names without a sound

Eyes widen, thirsting for sight
The brain ponders, absolute night

A tired body, the soul withers away
Lost and forsaken, the human way

Desperate in the darkness, a place we know so well
Heaven asunder, growing anxious for hell
