This is the opening track from the double CD,"Sleeping Flowers, Severed, Scream of Slaughter", co-written with British author and mystic John Matthews.



There is a darkness
Come upon the world
That's been a long time
Coming to us -

There is a darkness
That's been travelling
Down the roads we left behind
And it's followed us -

There is a darkness
Deep as oceans
In which all things
Will soon lie buried -

There is a darkness
Which began before us
A darkness that has followed us
Every step along the way -

There is a darkness
Full of echoes of times that were
And now it's here
And now it's here -

And now it's here.
