Song of the Abyss

from Masks - EP by Aviators



Inspired by Dark Souls and the legend of Artorias the Abysswalker. The greatest warrior of the kingdom is sent into the abyss to make a pact with the dark and stop the evil from rising to the world above. Alongside his loyal wolf Sif, they face the father of the Abyss himself but face certain defeat.


Old friend, we seem surrounded
As decay is closing in
And the kiss of deadly silence
Has been placed upon my skin
For the code we're bound to follow
You have led my last crusade
Now we're swallowed by the city
As it fades

I will shield you from the darkness
When the walls around us quake
I will hold back all the monsters
Until my bones begin to break
When I've lost I'll have to leave you
And the tears, they'll fall like rain
If I'm taken by the shadows
I will spare you from the pain
Cry a requiem for sunlight
Hide away now from the dark
To me the angered deep is calling
Tearing me apart
Somehow the whispers do command me
When the abyss has taken hold
Now carry on in glory
When I grow cold
Foolishly I left the darkness creeping
In this restless ruin my soul is bleeding
I confess to you the dark
Has taken me prisoner
I am corrupt beyond any rescue
I've forsaken my vow to protect you
Oh, end these horrors
Face the father of the sinister

If the fight's over
I will sacrifice my mind
Just to know you'll still be breathing
When the years have been unkind
So continue on without me
Guard my body and my flame
Keep a watch over the wasteland
When the world forgets my name
