Lost in an eerie nightmare, frightened, cold and alone.
I fight to escape the darkness, but my will is not my own.
The monsters all surround me, forcing me into their snare.
I search to find a way out, but there are traps everywhere.
I slip and stumble into a hole, and fall far into the deep.
Where villains rule, demons dwell, and beasts like to creep.
The ear piercing roaring makes it hard for me to think.
They hand me a bottle of poison, and I tilt my head to drink.
The howling rushes over me as I crumple to the ground.
The lights dim and the noise fades until there is no sound.
Only my barely beating heart, fighting until the very end.
When my last breath leaves my body, I watch my soul ascend.
