Day 2 - "and silence makes it so"


















"and silence makes it so"

(By Hyperion)


way down in the dying land
the darkness seems to know
i will take you by the hand
and silence makes it so

travel light and mark your path
the darkness seems to know
otherwise you face its wrath
and silence makes it so

if you get there before i
the darkness seems to know
keep the vigil; danger’s nigh
and silence makes it so

heed the twilight of the day
the darkness seems to know
growing black and bleeding gray
and silence makes it so

your journey came to crossroads’ deep
the darkness seems to know
you bowed and made new vows to keep
and silence makes it so

your path forever altered there
the darkness seems to know
the burden yours to never share
and silence makes it so

severed ties are on your mind
the darkness seems to know
those you scorned and left behind
and silence makes it so

now i am your master true
the darkness seems to know
be still and know i come for you
and silence makes it so

way down in the dying land
the darkness seems to know
i will take you by the hand
and silence makes it so
