Diablo: The Halls of the Blind

I really liked this poem from the original Diablo computer game. Like all of the other pieces of information you'd find, it made you dread what was to come.  For some reason, I thought somebody should make the poem into a song and sing it.

The haunting voice of Amy Lee, the lead singer of Evanescence, came to mind and Maybe with David Michael Draiman of Disturbed as back up. The song starts off slow, with Amy Lee singing the original poem.

I can see what you see not--
Vision milky then eyes rot
When you turn they will be gone
Whispering their hidden song

Then you see what cannot be
Shadows move where light should be
Out of sight and out of mind 
Cast down into the Halls of the Blind 

Cue in a heavy metal riff with Draiman shrieking--
"Of the blind!"
(Amy: Of the blind)
"Of the blind!"
(Amy: Of the blind)
"We're all so blind!-AH WA-AH-AH-AH!!!"

Followed by whatever lyrics they wanted to add.

It's just something I've thought about from time to time. What do you think?


Here's the Hall of the Blind sequence from Diablo:

Here's "Bring Me to Life" from Evanesence:

And here's "Down with the Sickness" by Disturbed:

Have A Nice Day
