Dead Mist

Dead mist, crawling towards me
Strokes my cheek with cold fingers
Chills my soul, chills my bones,
So very cold, kills those who are alone…

Wicked and alone…

Crows perched on branches
Red eyes gleaming in the dim light
Then the dead mist comes to swallow
Birds of a feather, birds flocked together, birds all alone…

Air so cold it burns, singes the flesh
Eyes so cold they yearn, yearn for mortal love
Heart so cold it’s smothered
In the need for a mother, denied by God on throne above.


Crawl towards the petrified
Creep into the bodies of the wicked
Paralyze those who lead sinful lives
And kill anyone who strays
Out of the field of day
Into the dead mist.

So many crimes and the criminals never found
Murders and the murderers released
Lovers lost and love lost every day
Relinquished silently.

Children in the dead of night
Hear and see but never tell
Of the hand of mist that roams the streets
Bringing demons down to Hell.

Screaming demons down to hell.

Once a fallen angel, cold and calm and beautiful
Now a weapon against evil
Tainted with the blood of those it’s killed
Mist creeping towards me
Strokes my cheek and wipes the tears away.


Crawl towards the fearful,
Creep into their minds,
Wicked and hurtful, fated to die,
They killed freedom with their knives,
They’ll pay with their lives,
They’ll stray into the dead mist,
Away into the dead mist,
Alone in the dead mist,
Screams echo in the dead mist…

We can sleep again.

Artist's Description

Just playing around with my idea of “dead mist”, an entity that heals by hurting. There are some strong moral issues in this, thus my attraction to it. This is a song, by the way, and sadly it loses quite a bit in it’s simple form. Oh well. :P

P.S. It’s still being worked on a bit, but it needs some feedback. :-)
