THING OF DARKNESS

Thing of darkness, part of time
As the sun doth rise in the distant sky
A thing beneath doth catch my eye
A thing which seems to live eternal
A thing as dark as the nocturnal

Thing of darkness, part of time
As the moon doth set in the distant sky
A thing beneath doth catch my eye
A thing which seems to cross the land
A thing which seems to co'er the sand

Thing of darkness, part of time
As the stars shine bright up in the sky
A thing beneath the land doth lie
A thing which lives on flesh of Man
A thing which we -- the world -- must ban

Thing of darkness, part of time
As the time doth pass, Man doth still grow old
The thing beneath we now behold
The thing which Man has as of yore
This thing so black, this thing called war
