Treasure Island

Dark and Light


All around me Darkness rolls
No Light shines through as it unfolds
Just as if the King foretold
A palace of pain and not of gold

Listen to him I did not
Put no trust in those Dark thoughts
Dark and Light must have fought
This answer is not what we sought

A huge mistake we have made
We did just what the King forebade
We crawled into that deep, Dark cave
In this pain we're forced to bathe

A warning I must give to you
Down to Earth the demons flew

And the King of Dark and Light
Will come and steal your soul tonight

    There might be a king of dark - an awful type of king; a king of light, I'd like; but neither will steal my soul if i don't let them in. No, my soul; is mine i won't let ant king to steal it. Still, life is lived and what is real is what you consider as real! (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
