To THe AbYSS


[To the tune of 'To Grandmother's House We Go']

Into the darkness and through the flame
To another dimension we go
Feel yourself fall, there's no need to stall
No sanity left at all
Bells are ringing and spirits are screaming
Don't let yourself go down too fast
Don't ask what's the matter, your soul, it will shatter
This life, it can hardly last
Into the darkness and through the flame
Beyond the shadows we go
Hold onto life tight, for darkness is night
Insanity takes control

    I just wrote it for fun. Silly in a morbid sort of way I guess, like you said. Any meaning you found in it was all you. =] (Report) Reply
