Darkness

Nightmares are near,
circling like vultures  
They torture me, I do not have them  
They have me  
Too scary to live ...
Reality or delirium?  
The day will come soon,  
but where is the light?  
 
Darkness ...  
 
Night after night I go crazy  
Anxiety destroys the soul like a plague  
Am I still alive?  
 
Darkness ...  
 
Nightmares beat me  
They choke me if they are angry  
And they cut me if they are sad  
What are these torments for?  
Give me an answer  
Candles are burning everywhere,  
but where is the light?  
 
Darkness ...  
 
Two o'clock in the morning struck  
It is time for the demons to appear  
Attracted by the constant torment  
 
Darkness ...  
 
I am scattering holy water around,  
And on my knees I pray,  
"May the torture end in the morning,  
May I die this night!"  
 
Darkness ...  
 
I called on God  
And again I hoped to die,  
That I would break free from  
the net of evil  
 
Dark ...  
 
So endless and scary  
I cannot wake up from these nightmares  
I know it is my own fault, God,  
forgive me  
 
Darkness, darkness, darkness ...
