lyrics

Battle not with monsters,
Lest you yourself become a monster,
And if you gaze for long enough into the abyss,
The abyss gazes also into you.

I stared into the abyss,
And it stared right back.
I tried to look away,
But the sky had gone black.

Where are the stars?
I whispered like a coward.
The laughing reply echoed out,
"They have all been devoured."

I saw you in my dreams,
They lasted forty days and forty nights.
A flood carried them away from such a terrible sight.

Your broken smile,
Your blind dead eyes. (Your blind dead eyes)
I was so afraid that they saw into my mind.

I screamed into the abyss,
And it spoke back to me.
It's voice was that,
Of an unrepentant sea.

"Beware! Beware!"
The ocean cried out.
For it is night,
And there are monsters about.

"And how do I save myself?"
I begged, raving, and ranting.
The abyss merely laughed,
"You can't."

I saw you in my dreams,
They lasted forty days and forty nights.
A flood carried them away from such a terrible sight.

Your broken smile,
Your blind dead eyes. (Your blind dead eyes)
I was so afraid that they saw into my mind.

I whispered into the abyss,
And all it did was listen.
It was a peaceful surrender,
And my sins were forgiven.

It is not so bad,
Living without the stars.
For I know I have fallen,
I just can't see how far.

I saw you in my dreams,
They lasted forty days and forty nights.
A flood carried them away from such a terrible sight.

Your broken smile,
Your blind dead eyes. (Your blind dead eyes)
I was so afraid that they saw into my mind.
