One Chance

Just a whisker from the black
I pushed myself into the light
I’m not here to be alone
I’m not here to say I’m sorry

I fled the terror, I won’t go back
I want fire, I need it bright
I’m not here to be unknown

A whisper through the trees
A hostile voice of love
Inferno slowly breathes
Bitch-slap from the gods
Fishing from above
Drags me from my knees

You have one chance left
One chance

My account was in the red
I begged for one more line of credit
There’ll be time to be alone
There’ll be time to say I’m sorry

I dodged some horror, I’m back on track
No puzzles now, I think I get it
There’ll be time to be unknown

A whisper from the sea
Hostile voice of love
The darkness slowly leaves
Sharp rap from the gods
The spirits playing rough
Drags me from the deep

You have one chance left
One chance
