Testament - Alone in the Dark Lyrics

Testament The Legacy cover art

When I was but very young
Sorcerers came to claim my mind
Leaving death and hatred to unmask
The master of the game had won
And let his final sin be known
Killing those who stand in his path

Alone in the dark, where the demons are torturing me
The dark passage of revenge is all that I see

Armies of witches are called in from the north
Murder of the elders occur
The high priest of evil has lowered his iron fist
Thousands of people have died

The slaughter of the innocent
The house is burning that lights the sky
My nightmare has begun to unfold
The hissing of the cobra's tongue
Sound and feel of ripping flesh
Fall two thousand feet sky

My terror has controlled my life
And let my only weakness known
I got to rid this hell from my head
I fight off evil sorcerers
Rid my mind of his torture
And meet the falling angel in his realm

Alone in the dark, where the demons are torturing me
The dark passage of revenge is all that I see

Faustus prepares the legions of the night
Diviners from the far north arrive
Aimlessly people there huddled in a pack
Wreaking deadly havoc on mankind

I fall in my deepest sleep
To meet the evil Asteroth
His title is the grand duke of hell
I fight until the end is near
To rid my mind of hopes and fears
My destination lies in my dreams

Set me free!

When I was but very young
Sorcerers came to claim my mind
Leaving death and hatred to unmask
The master of the game had won
And let his final sin be known
Killing those who stand in his path

Alone in the dark, where the demons are torturing me
The dark passage of revenge is all that I see

Armies of witches are called in from the north
Murder of the elders occur
The high priest of evil has lowered his iron fist
Thousands of people will die
