Fade into the black.

Sound crawls away,

light will dim to nothing, 

time ticks by.


Alone in the black,

voice comes no more.

Light has abandoned,

time ticks by.


Still in the black,

no voice to be heard,

fogotten what light is,

time ticks by.


Eternity in the black.

Sound does not exist.

Light does not exist.

Time ticks by.


The black,

left without hearing,

alone with no sight,

time is silent too.
