These dark skies and darker lands

rolling on and on to blind cliffs

above the graveyard of the damned

who rise and walk by the light of the moon

searching again and again for their last breath

in a place where the world once reached out

to wrap them in a cold embrace

and drag them away to a false paradise

hallowed by the passing of the unholy who guard the gate

and the road leading out of this wraith land
