Until the Dawn Comes

Chapter Text

From Capt. HM Murdock's diary

 

I can hear quiet breaths again,

creeping up the stairs;

I don't think I can stay alone.

Screaming and whining,

I run away from the shadows,

pounding on the walls around us without stopping...

 

You know,

it's closer again

and it will get through the window bars.

It's my dark madness.

You know my past,

so watch over me

until the dawn comes.

 

After a night in this room

I'm frozen stiff,

confused and trapped in the catcher of my dreams.

So hold my hand tightly

when I struggle through the darkness,

show me the way here, get me back.

 

You know,

it's closer again,

and it will get through the window bars.

It's my dark madness.

You know my past,

so watch over me

until the dawn comes.

 

You know.

You're my anchor, you're my shield,

when I'm numb with cold

and my mind is swallowed by shadow.

When the dogs of war roar again,

please, keep holding my hand.

Everything goes up in smoke.

 

When it's closer again,

getting through the window bars

it's my dark madness.

You know my past,

so watch over me

until the dawn comes.
