Forever hiding from the light,
Deep beneath the world,
You’ll find my immortal soul,
Or so I am told.
The fates say I am damned to hell
For the awful things I’ve done,
For saying things I ought have not,
For battles I have not won.
Eternal darkness claims my soul,
It claims my heart as well,
And I have just one last request
Before I burn in hell.
Please, do not live as I have lived,
In sadness and regret,
And drowning in depression,
And, lest we forget,
Smile and enjoy life--
Do not waste yourself away--
A shadow of your past self,
Until you reach that dreaded day,
When the fates inform you of your past
And where your future lies,
And what remains of your last days
Are clouded with disguise.
It is far too late for me,
But for you, it’s not--
Do not condemn yourself like me
Or it’s to hell, to rot.

Forever hiding from the light,

Deep beneath the world,

You’ll find my immortal soul,

Or so I am told.

The fates say I am damned to hell

For the awful things I’ve done,

For saying things I ought have not,

For battles I have not won.

Eternal darkness claims my soul,

It claims my heart as well,

And I have just one last request

Before I burn in hell.

Please, do not live as I have lived,

In sadness and regret,

And drowning in depression,

And, lest we forget,

Smile and enjoy life--

Do not waste yourself away--

A shadow of your past self,

Until you reach that dreaded day,

When the fates inform you of your past

And where your future lies,

And what remains of your last days

Are clouded with disguise.

It is far too late for me,

But for you, it’s not--

Do not condemn yourself like me

Or it’s to hell, to rot.
