A Final Nightmare (River of Damnation)
In the darkest of my hours, close to midnight
When I close my eyes, longing for a merciful dream
All I get is Nightmare’s solid bite
And my mind floats downstream
Behind guise of sleep my eyes pierce the veil of night’s tide
As I follow my consciousness down this passage dark
A shiny penny for the ferryman secures my ride
Along the rivers fiery current I shall embark
The movement of the waves sooth my withered heart
While the whispers of death guide my trip
Mind and body slowly drift apart
Strangely, I feel calm on this dead man’s ship
Flames reflect in liquid pools of Limbo’s estuary
As the faces of lost souls look up from below
Cast out into nothingness, no hope for sanctuary
I feel their grief, the emptiness they surely know
I wonder what will be my destiny
When this unbelievable journey comes to an end
Shall I burn or can I finally be free?
In which direction will my soul be sent?
Reflections in the depths of my life misspent
I watch my history dance in the rivers flow
My penance for wrongful deeds and what they meant
Too late for remorse as terror of hell-fire starts to grow
I see the consequences of a life lived in vain
An endless road of cowardly hiding away
In the end, all that remains is the pain
As I pass through this Devil’s gateway
