Hanging Terror

And then there was nothing
And out of this void came the serpent
Prince of darkness
Ruler of the weakened
And then there was fear
And into the night I was driven
Hunted down by shadows
The sudden taste of blood
Oh, how could you leave me hanging?

And then there was fire
And in its flames I became a pris'ner
A blinded desciple
A caged slave
And then there was pain
And in its poison I drowned
While the smell of burnt flesh
Rose from blackened bones
But still, I came when I was hanged!
