The Abyss

about

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.
~Friedrich Nietzsche

lyrics

Into the Abyss I fall
beneath the gallows pole
under the blackened water
into the sand I boil
clouds crystalize like diamonds

clawing into my eyes
clawing into my eyes

the smell of burning flesh cuts into my soul
dead may walk the desert
but the living walk this hell
clouds crystallize like devils

clawing into my eyes
clawing into my eyes

into the abyss i fall
into the living hell
beneath the blackened waters
only the demons dwell
clouds crystallize like diamonds

clawing into my eyes
clawing into my eyes

warring and slaughter
reaching for every breath
rain and chewed on up this life
thats stained into the breath
moment by moment we walk on

clawing into my eyes
clawing into my eyes

into the abyss i fall
rounding for every corner
deep in the dark i toil
lights flash in time i see them

clawing into my eyes
clawing into my eyes

into the abyss i fall
down in the devils court
reaching through all the holes
back and forth and inside out theyre

clawing into my eyes
clawing into my eyes
