Lyrics: Adapted from Edgar Alan Poe


I WAS sick - sick - sick unto death
I felt that my senses had left.
The sound of the voices merged in
one dreamy indeterminate hum.

I tottered upon the brink
into the abyss

I shrank back -- but the walls closed in
I saw them writhe delirious horror,
I felt every fibre in my frame thrill
the angel forms meaningless spectres

I tottered upon the brink
into the abyss

A suffocating odour pervaded the prison!
The breath of heated iron!

A richer tint of crimson

I panted! I gasped for breath!
No doubt in the design of my tormentors

The pictured horrors of blood.

Discordant hum, human voices!
Loud blast, many trumpets!
Harsh grating, thousand thunders!
The fiery walls rushed back!
