Lyrics

1. Around the beggar spreads a shadow of those who do not see
A glimpse of what he was and what they don’t want to be
And from the campfire the yellow flames crackle up a song
About how all the people silent thinks they don´t belong

Ch
And the flames they keep on singing as the people passing by
And the moon calls out a scream for ask of those who tries
But the unseeing keeps walking and the shadow hold his breath
When the the reaper whisper crumbling words of death

2. People stand to watch the shadows of the broken and the poor
They also all run faster In the endless hunt for more
But the truth is that they´re running just to try to escape the breath
of the old man with the scyte who whispers silent words of death

Ch
And the flames they keep on singing as the people passing by
And the moon calls out a scream for all of those who tries
But the unseeing keeps walking and the shadow hold his breath
When the the reaper whisper crumbling words of death

3. There is something beyond mountains, beyond all of that we know
And everyday the soon and moon gives us quite a show
Bet the unseeing keep tunning and they will never see
Anything else that people that they don´t think they will be
Ch
And the flames they keep on singing as the people passing by
And the moon calls out a scream for ask of those who tries
But the unseeing keeps walking and the shadow hold his breath
When the the reaper whisper crumbling words of death

The thought of a shadow holding its breath is something...frightening and very mysterious. Wonderful lines and descriptions that tell a haunting story. The first verse puts us right in the thick of it immediately. So well-written!

A nightmarish vision that's utterly compelling. It's like a terrific gothic poem, or something Edgar Allen Poe might write. Chilling.

I really like the rhythmic flow of the whole lyric, good potential to be set to music. The flames singing, moon screaming are very effective. Good writing!

Love the vibe of this and the rhythm of word flow. Very eerie and it doesn't even have music yet! Brilliant write Maddie. I would love to hear it when it is done. I would have loved to try but my house is full of ears. So I am doing lyrics only as well.

It’s interesting how those who go ignored by the masses tend to see things; other worldly things that said masses tend to miss. I know it reads “spooky” but it impresses upon me a people group lost; and it’s not necessarily the broken and poor. This is insightful songwriting, Maddie.

lots of spooky lines and images in this return to the dark side. i feel many things here are new. it is not a revisit, but a new landscape. the last two verses are especially unsettling and scary.

Haunting, eerie, dark and all that good stuff. Strong atmosphere of a classic ghost story. Very singable too.

Very well written dark, spooky, haunting lyrics, vivid, visual and dramatic.

This is so deliciously dark and spooky… the details are so vivid and the chorus is perfectly spine chilling! I can imagine music and your vocals singing the last few lines of the chorus in a way that would feel so scary and haunting.
