Crushed by the merciless hammer, of a poison running deep within,
Drawn in by fierce lust grown further than the thirst bequeathed
Demonic power withers, from the infinite destruction cast
Inward by sullied dreams and nightmares plucked from ominous hells

The fire burning deep replaced by dwindling embers,
A charcoal left behind, crumbling into dust and nothing more
Once a mighty flame now empty, dry and powerless

She burns his symbol into her flesh
Calling out his name, for the dark lord to aide
No answer from Asmodeus, no answer from Satan
The witch cries out in agony

Clutching at her chest she crawls, across the forest floor
Blurred between this world and next, her mind drifts constantly
Turned back to dirt, she calls out, screaming with furious anger
Curse you Salem, destroyed,

Through the eyes of the dying, mirroring the despair and hopelessness felt
Black tears stain the skin, searing acid leaking out,
Through the eyes of the dying, mirroring the despair
Black tears bore a hole in the earth

She walks alone, through the valley of the damned,
Aimless and breathless, clutching at her chest,
Seeking to survive, the hard-wired human instincts
Fighting with hysterical strength

Howls and screams unheard
Or furthermore unwanted
death cries resound, light dies

Believing like a fool that help would arrive
From the most decrepit creatures alive
From incomprehensible evils that dwell within,
The immeasurable evils that lurk in the shadows
