silently in shadow lyrics – midnight odyssey

it’s creeping, it’s creeping silently in shadow
it’s listening, it’s listening for the sound of breathing
it wanders, it wanders where no eyes will see it
it’s always, it’s always just a step away

it’s feeding, it’s feeding on the dreams of mortals
it’s draining, it’s draining all the life away
it grows with, it grows with every fear of man
it’s always, it’s always just a breath away

and in this age of darkness it grows
its empty void is now visible
a vacuum of living things
whose souls it feasts
mankind has only itself to blame…

its shadow now seems not as silent
this black hole absorbs all the light
the silhouettes of mankind
now merge with the void
who can now tell them apart?
