The Wind Whispers “Death” Tonight

The wind whispers “death” tonight
With darkness the skies are veiled
And while you encompass me inside
I fear I cannot prevail

The wind whispers “death” tonight
Onto debris I dare to clutch
But your savage attacks – too much to fight
Weak am I against your icy touch

The wind whispers “death” tonight
As you plunge, explosives sound
And I see my life flash before my eyes
As you drag me deeper down

The wind whispers “death” tonight
Now I’m locked in your embrace
Too late is it now for your rage to subside
For I am off to a better place
