Born from the seal of darkness
I rise
Formed by the blackest matter
To be welcomed by the voices' advice

Resist the voices in my head
They shared the same fate as I
Bring me closer to the darkness ahead

I must trust you with this encumbrance
Fathoms below, lies that haunt me
Vanquish their words in hopes of resistance

Don't let it happen, don't let me give in
I must have this but I want to avulse
To sever this tether
To have not a care for anyone else

I am
The Dark One

Relieve me of this tether
But then you become obstinate
The curse passes on
For eternity


from The Dark Curse, released January 6, 2017
