3. Perdition’s Waltz

Lyrics by Steff Müller, music by Tom Ott. Arranged by EMPERDIA

A moonlit though misty night
I woke from uneasy slumber
The forest nearby, as always it cries
With a voice like roaring thunder

The path I walked, obstructed by roots and stones
Lead into the woods, so I walked in
The cold and humid wind crawled into my bones
Forward, forward to reach the goal so deep within
While I was stumbling through grove and bramble
My eyes caught an oddly appearing view
Its presence was obscure and evil
Curiosity moved my body forward so I could see…

And so we danced
The dance of death and I glanced
At my future, the end
Has finally come

Through the scrub I fought my way
Its thorns cut my skin wide open
But the inner desire forced me to hurry
Until I finally reached my goal then
Its shimmering true shape, so beautiful yet crooked
Forsooth, I was trapped under its spell
Why I didn’t run before its claws took me?
I could not tell

And so we danced
The dance of death and I glanced
At my future, the end
Has finally come

Stripped of all fear
My life reappeared
Before my eyes and only now I realize
There was no one there, except for me and my knife

Soon to be released!
