I am darkness
I am death
I am here to take your breath

Some fear me
Others welcome me
But in the end everyone sees me

I am cold and I am silent
But sometimes I can be violent
With just the slightest touch I could make you lose oh so much
I can taste your soul but that isn't what I stole

Despite what you may interpret I'm most certainly not the culprit
I may end your life in the blink of an eye but it was not my choice to end it and that is no lie
I do what I have to do and slew who I had to slew
You see I hold no grudge against you

Their time was up they were out of luck
I smelt it I felt it
Their souls had gone sour
Then before you knew it, it was their final hour

I simply guided them home to where it was they belong
Then I listened to them sing their song
Whether the person be good or bad happy or sad
It was my job to end it
I wasn't that bad
