In the threads, this life unravels
Waking night, in sweet embrace
The one I see, staring back at dawn
is the thief of all I know

This path I have wandered
grows longer every day, and still
all crumbles into dust, still I taste
these ashes in my mouth

Chasing the night, into the day
Takes me somewhere, far away
In my games of killing time
It was time, that was killing me

In the ruins I must walk
through the lands of king made fool
in the words of the jester,
treasure, is more than silver and gold

Confined to my dreams,
Freedom escapes again
in the vanishing dark
I rise again

Chasing the night, into the day
Takes me somewhere, far away
In my games of killing time
It was time, that was killing me

(Take me)
These hands, are not my own
(far away)
What I fear
(has come to pass)
It is the shadow
(that's leading me)

Write a song to this and I'll rate it :P

The lyrics are very much like In Flames', and I like it. You included the In Flames -mascott Jester there too

If you are going to record this, I'd suggest you sing clean in the beginning, and start growling towards the chorus, cause that would sound cool . The background singin could be like COB that the others just shout it fastly. Oh, and IMO you should replace gold and silver, since jester fits better with silver :P

I think you've heard Vanishing Light from Come Clarity
