The Hollow Men V

I finally finished all the the parts to The Hollow Men.
To sum it up, it's a poem by T.S. Eliot, but I took it and turned the poem into lyrics for a metal song. Because that poem looked metal to me.
Voice Acting (Near the beginning and at the end) for the Children by Sh0ckFyre (Sh0ckFyre.newgrounds.com ) Thanks very much, Sh0ck.
The woman crying at the very end is a sound effect I found on the net.
And the rest is done by me. I did use some pitchbending for the voice acting parts and the growl vox.
The point of changing the pitch of the vox was to make the lyrics seem like they're from a different perspective for each part of the three songs. (My clean vox and high growls on Part I and II, TwilightNecrosis' clean vox and low growls for parts III and IV) And yeah.
It took me around 3 days spending 5-8 hours each day on it to finish this song.

Here we go round the prickly pear
Prickly pear prickly pear
Here we go round the prickly pear
At five o'clock in the morning.

Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the Shadow

Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
.....Life is very long

Between the desire
And the spasm
Between the potency
And the existence
Between the essence
And the descent
Falls the Shadow
.......For Thine is the Kingdom

For Thine is
Life is
For Thine is the

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
