    This is a song lyric based somewhat on the music of Iron Maiden's Hallowed Be Thy Name...
    Personally, this was one of my first (maybe in the initial 10) and so far my favourite attempt at song lyrics.



    Running from the ghosts buried with time
    The power is more than you can defy
    So don't let the Sandman come near you
    Know him well, for with him near
    There's nothing you can do...

    Felt the joy of innocence for the last time
    Now you know that the time is up for you

    This new guilt is all you can think of
    The grief, the sadness will soon follow
    And its more than you can take tonight...

    Don't you worry, they can't hurt you
    Even if they try, they'll never know

    But your life is now completely wasted
    And tommorow you wont be any better
    Than how you are today...

    Don't ever think that you're all alone
    You're not the only one to kill

    I know someone who might understand
    And for you he'll always be waiting
    Somewhere far beyond...

    Look, noone knows except you and me
    And if you follow me, noone ever will

    Hiding from the secrets engraved in stone
    The writing is deeper than the deepest gold
    Heaven is nothing more than a myth
    Or thats what men've always said
    But inside, you know and I as well
    That heaven is all that is true.

    it's a very iron maidenish poem. i would have preferred 'hell to be the only truth'... all in all, nice work..
