"Blackness Falls" lyrics - DANZIG

"Blackness Falls"

Blackness falls across your face
Never fails to leave a trace
Shadow cross, shadow grey
In the time it takes to wake

Blackness falls upon your cheek
Heal the strong and strip the weak
Daylight end and nighttime rise
Out of scale the serpentine

Blackness seeps into your eyes
Slithers in, thick as mud
Blackest in, blackest out
And you know it's all about

Blackness drips into your eyes
Blacker tears, bleeding smile
Shadow cross, shadow dark
Black the tongue, serpentine
