Dark Star by DJ TyrerEdit
Is this where we go when we die?
All I could see was a patch of black sky
And then I saw a darkened star
Above the hill, so very far
Off so it didst appear
Equidistant with that star of fear.
The only light that star gave was black
And it lit me no way back.
It seemed to all my sight
A dak star shining bright as night,
Beckoning to my conscious mind
To step into oblivion, see what I might find.
