SUMMARY DURATION DOWNLOAD
Following previous songs from the "Little Pit of Madness" series that viewed madness from the outside, this song introduces a dramatic shift in perspective to that of the first person. Now I have become dad, and I get to taste madness from the inside. Guilt eats at me and paranoia has me in its grip, and all eyes seem to look at me accusingly as if they all know what I've done. Then, even the very moon itself seems to gaze down at me in judgement of my sins. But, what sins are these? 5:03

VERSE 1

	Malevolent moon burning,
		you mock me with your smirk.
	And all around me, whispers spurning:
		your servants in the darkness lurk.

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE 1

VERSE 2

	Accusing eyes, my guilt extol.
		From black, like beams, they glare.
	They penetrate my guilty soul.
		Like jagged blades they rip and tear...

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE 2

	...dark and shameful secrets to bear.

CHORUS 1

	Malevolent moon burning bright,
		but your task is as dark as night.
	You're gonna make me pay for the mistakes I made
		in those days before I saw the light.

	All I wanna do is hide now
		from the guilt that is chasing me.
	Cannot even understand how
		this whole hell has come to be.

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE 3

BRIDGE

	Run 'n hide.
		Fear inside.
	Hunted by
		the other side.
	Cannot turn.
		Sure to burn.
	No way to escape
		all the eyes.

VERSE 3

	Malevolent moon burning,
		what evils lurk within?
	What wrath I have been earning
		through my unspeakable mortal sins?

VERSE 4

	Malevolent man in the moon,
		blood flowing from your fangs.
	Justice to be exacted soon.
		Judgement over my soul hangs.

CHORUS 2

	Malevolent moon burning bright,
		but your task is as dark as night.
	You're gonna make me pay for the mistakes I made
		in those days before I saw the light.

	All I wanna do is hide now
		from the guilt that is chasing me.
	Cannot even understand how
		this whole hell has come to be.

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE 4

CHORUS 3

	All I wanna do is hide now
		from the guilt that is chasing me.
	Cannot even understand how
		this whole hell has come to be.

	All I wanna do is hide now
		from the guilt that is chasing me.
	Cannot even understand how
		this whole hell has come to be.
