He screams so loud
but nobody will ever hear him shout
his silent cries
no one around to see him die
he looked deep into that demons eyes
repenting all his sins
but when it was too late for him
he knew he couldn’t win
he bowed his head.

I’m connected to the darkness now
I can’t run away
no matter what I say or do
no one will hear me pray
today’s the day
connected to my darkness now
in every single way.

He rolled his eyes
and accepted the moment of his demise
his eyes went dry
there were no more tears to even cry
he walked right into that fire
without a single sound
he bowed his head down so low
he knew he wouldn’t be found
he screamed so loud.

I’m connected to the darkness now
I can’t run away
no matter what I say or do
no one will hear me pray
today’s the day
connected to my darkness now
in every single way!

In the sea of flames
he just swims there in insane
his mind deranged
all he can feel now is the pain
all the lost souls around him
have been right where he’s been
now in eternal nightmares
he’s paying for his sins
as it burns his skin.

I’m connected to the darkness now
I can’t run away
no matter what I say or do
no one will hear me pray
today’s the day
connected to my darkness
in every single way!

He rolled his eyes
and accepted
the moment of his demise
his silent cries
his tear filled eyes
the darkened skies
consumed by lies!
connected in the darkness
his soul has tried the hardest
the punishments are the harshest
flames burn the scars.
