My world is surrounded by darkness.

          Darkness that seems to have no end and no beginning.

                   Darkness that consumes and devours everything that comes too close.

                             Too close to my heart.

                                       A heart that contains many secrets.

           Secrets that the world can never see.

                     Never know.

Plim, Plam,

          Bim, Bam,

                   Plim, Plam,

                             Bim, Bam.

He would love nothing more than to see me

          Raped,

                   Killed,

                             Tortured,

                                      Slaughtered,

           Tormented,

                     Haunted,

                              Consumed,

   Devoured,

            By the ever growing darkness.

For nothing would give him greater pleasure

          Than to watch me die.

                   Die in the most agonizing of deaths.

                             And then lead me into his bloodied kingdom,

                                      And give me as a new toy to his red-eyed pets.

Plim, Plam,

          Bim, Bam,

                   Plim, Plam,

                             Bim, Bam.

The darkness is made up of lies.

          Ever-growing lies that continue to flourish.

                   Flourish because of one person’s selfish decision

                             That threatens to destroy us all.

Plim, Plam,

          Bim, Bam,

                   Plim, Plam,

                             Bim, Bam.

I hate him.

          And he hates me.

                   And we are doomed to never live in perfect harmony.

                             And that’s fine with me,

                                      Because his days are numbered anyway.

           And so is his lease on this world.

                     And his clearance over me.

 Plim, Plam,

          Bim, Bam,

                   Plim, Plam,

                             Bim, Bam.

I must find the answers to my questions.

          The truth behind the lies.

                   I must make my way through the dark forest that guards my heart,

                             And save it from the darkness that threatens to destroy it.

                                      There is light at the end of the dark forest.

           I know there is.

                     I can see it from here.

                              The answer lies at the end.

   I have to find it.
