lyrics

Frozen in darkness
Was it all meant to be
Evil and torturous
Dark and disorderly?
All of this picturesque formal attire weighs me down
Working in ovens
And runways on busy streets
High schools are ill equipped
Labels all worry me
What have we done with the ones that were meant to be useful to us?

My dear, there’s nothing to fear
The keeper of night has come under light

Here I am cast aside
Thrown to the pseudo wolves
Maybe it’s what I wear
How fat is suitable?
Are there words written down telling us all who to be?
Oh lord, I know there is!
These lyrical cannibals!
All of this food for thought
It’s almost inedible
Still it’s been shoved down our gullets until we acquire a taste

Oh to be ignorant
Blissfully confident
Stand at the doorway to hell only peeking in
How can we change all the comfort arranged in our miserable lives?
Well, find what empowers you
Shelter it from the group
Don’t you be tempted by all those who claw at you
All of those lost in the dark gaping wounds of the mind

My dear, there’s nothing to fear
The keeper of night has come under light

Standing in fire just to keep warm
Light from the fire
Darkness is born
Shadows can fall in all kinds of ways
But those cast in evil
Shattered in day

My dear, there’s nothing to fear
The keeper of night has come under light
