Dark Arts


It’s no surprise you’ve shown some curiosity
But you’d be wise to take my words most soberly
The discipline of which I dare to speak
Is mercurial, quite chimerical

Once you begin to trifle
With power that can choke and stifle
You may find it’s hard to know
Who’s in control, and who is controlled

So you want to play with magic?
You’ll never get it back once your soul departs
Tell me, do you dare to do this?
Because there’s no defence against the Dark Arts

Will you be spared?
Or be ensnared?
When all your thoughts
Turn shades of black

It’s quite the rush; how could it be a sin?
A gentle touch; a tattoo on your skin
But soon enough, you start to lose your grip
Your sense of right and wrong begins to slip

That which you try to sever
Grows back with more strength than ever
Like a beast with many heads
With every strike, it only spreads

So you want to play with magic?
This sorcery is not for the faint of heart
Tell me, do you dare to do this?
Because there’s no defence against the Dark Arts

Will you seize the power?
Or be devoured?
When darkness takes
Everything you’ve got

You might think you’re incorruptible
But the Dark Arts are indestructible
Take care (take care) what you set into motion
This magic is more potent than any charm or potion

You may fall under its spell, and at first things may go well
But, all too late, you’ll realise you’ve trapped yourself in hell
No matter what you do, there’s no escaping from this power
All the sweetness of your arrogance can turn so quickly sour

This magic never slumbers; it grows stronger with each mutation
The only way to overpower it is resisting the temptation
The Dark Arts are like a hydra, ever-changing and eternal
Cut off one head and a new one sprouts, more clever and infernal

So you want to play with magic?
You’ll never see the light once the spiral starts (once it starts)
Tell me, do you dare to do this?
Because there’s no defence against the Dark Arts

Will you prevail? (prevail?)
Or will you fail? (will you fail?)
When you attempt
The unforgivable
