lyrics

---"LIGHT OF A TORCH"---

Empty streets, the sun is down
Barking dogs, a distant sound
Early morn, see the dawn
Breaking red, tomorrow's dead
Neon lights, never dies
A monument, we've reached the end
The end of love, the end of hate
The end of time, the ending of the world

They were just like all others
Not so long ago
Rats all in the dumps
And headed for the town
Possessed by evil forces
With madness in their eyes
Raging cross the country
They left grief and death behind

Please share my nightmare, won't you bring around the light of a torch
Please share my nightmare, I need a back to lean upon
I'm scared to death by the things that I see in the light of a torch

It's burning in the city
The lights went out tonight
The demons without pity
Quickly fill my sight
They're coming fast towards me
Like the streets have come alive
Expose their yellow teeth
In a deafening battle cry

Please share my nightmare, won't you bring around the light of a torch
Please share my nightmare, I need a back to lean upon
I'm scared to death by the things I see in the light of a torch

I'm up against the wall
Fire keeps them back
Soon my torch will burn out
Leaving everything in black
I have to find somebody
Who can wake me from this dream
There has to be someone
To hear me when I scream
