I should never fear the darkness

For that would mean fearing myself

I should never cry from a wound

For I myself inflicted it

I should never be scared of a storm

For I was the one who summoned it

I should never fear the moonlight

For I am the shadow it makes

I am the reason why the sun hides

I am the darkness and you should be the one to fear

The light is what you fear

It burns your skin like fire

But I am the darkness

And I burn worse than hell

I am a shadow

I follow you and see everything you do

The moment you close your eyes I'll swallow you up

And nobody will notice you're gone

I am the moonlight shining down

And I see everything around

You will never escape my wrath

For I can never die

And your curse is to live forever

And every time you say a word

I'll know when it's a lie

I am the darkness

Loved and feared by many

But these can't feed my hunger

I need blood a plenty

The darkness is what I am

The darkness

That'd be me

I could wait in the light forever

And never truly be

But once the sun knows I'm here

He will surely hide

And once he does

You'll realize

It's your final time
