Darkness Settles In

  • Another sun sets down behind me, another day comes crashing in
    There's a whispering wind that's blowing, there's a storm that's closing in
    I can hear the trains they're rolling to a place I've never been
    And I can feel her breath beside me with an empty glass of gin
    As the darkness settles in, I can hear her voice again
    I can hear your voice again

    Waiting for someone to save me but everyone just runs away
    Waiting for someone to change me but no one ever comes
    I'm breaking down the walls that cage me but nothing ever falls in place
    Waiting for the end to take me, blinded by the sun

    All the ghosts that live inside me always waiting in the wind
    I can see through my reflection, what I've become and what I've been
    You see, your Heaven doesn't want me and your Hell won't let me in
    It's like I'm holding all the aces but I know I'll never win

    Waiting for someone to save me but everyone just runs away
    Waiting for someone to change me but no one ever comes
    I'm breaking down the walls that cage me but nothing ever falls in place
    Waiting for the end to take me, blinded by the sun

    You can take it away, tear it all down
    Spit in my face, pushed to the ground
    Look what I've become
    I've fallen from grace, bloodied and bound
    Taking up space, lost and I'm found
    Look what I've become

    I can hear the snakes they're winding
    Singing songs of pain and sin
    There's an anger overflowing
    From this empty glass of gin
    As the darkness settles in
    And the darkness settles in

    Waiting for someone to save me but everyone just runs away
    Waiting for someone to change me but no one ever comes
    I'm breaking down the walls that cage me but nothing ever falls in place
    Waiting for the end to take me, blinded by the sun
    (You can take it away) And the darkness settled in
    (You can take it away) And the darkness settled in

    (You can take it away) As the darkness settles in Writer/s: Ivan Moody, Jason Hook, Kevin Churko, Zoltan Bathory
