Dorian Gray

I am Dorian Gray!

Who winds the clock that keeps the hands of time moving?
Who is the champion of immortality?
See the man who is eternal; see the secret of a darkened soul

The picture of Dorian Gray, the picture of Dorian Gray
Dorian Gray, Dorian Gray

See the secret of a dark soul, who knows what evil a heart can hold?
See the secret of a dark soul, who knows what evil a heart can hold?

Who writes the book that keeps the minds of man going?
Who is its author, who has defied all time?
See the man who is eternal; see the secret of a darkened soul

The picture of Dorian Gray, the picture of Dorian Gray
Dorian Gray, Dorian Gray

See the secret of a dark soul, who knows what evil a heart can hold?
See the secret of a dark soul, who knows what evil a heart can hold?
