in the shadows lyrics – children of bodom

i cannot get up by the howling cry
just justify my longing to die,
bury me down at last,
i think about it in the shadows and cry!

can scissors heal a man torn of tears,
a fading i fear inside.
the reaper in sheet will stand by me
i’m dreaming, i’m wearing a black dress that night!

i’m just a being tonight,
and still i’m dressed so black… oh yeah!
maybe i’m just blind,
but maybe i should try…

can’t you see why the vision is calling you?

i got the one, the dream of horror!
dreams of blood, dreams of war!
rudest eyes have seen the fright
welcome to the eternal night!

you won’t be a butcher
no, you won’t be at last
somebody’s the trigger
take it off!
what, you are the priest’s son? so f*ck –
so f*ck yourself and die!

sill i stand against the death!
am i just a shade?
always i’m awake and in black!
sill i dare to praise the lord –
no i won’t p*ss to the lord
goodbye – no…

so the keeper waits upon,
he waits upon a border
let me own your punishment,
it’s time to break the border!

the candlelight fades away
there’s nothing at all but me…

i stare at death and the darkest one’s
watching me with cold eyes
a god has been with me in the shadows
i lost my reason to hate! ya!

[voice:]
(so it’s right…)
(i can leave the shadows!)
(the last one has to survive!)
yaww!
wow – right!

with my light shining bright
i got my way, to regret? (just my hearts)?
with my last dying ryhme i got my world
to betray for what i did by my motherf*cking heart!

the shadows draw back into honesty and love!
obey, and it will cut your throat
i can’t speak and you shant be the next,
the shadows strike in your blame – yaw!
