lyrics

In the dead of the night
He clings to a flame that is fading,
A beacon of flickering light
A Crooked candle burnt low
Cuts through the tint of his window
And guides him into the dawn
Betraying his will
Betraying his need
Betrayed by the salt of the earth
Her rotten seeds
Have poisoned his mind
His skin and his bones
His lungs and his blood
His heart and his soul

My heart and soul
In the dead of the night
I watch a candle burn away
Holding no fear of the dark
I close my eyes, fall into sleep
The sweet scent of the wax
Has calmed and soothed my apprehension
Leaving the night behind
There's nothing for me here

The day offers little restbite
from the looming black
He's either shackled in the light
Or alone in the dark
He knows the time is upon him
The candle won't last
The dreaded night is approaching
So he better act fast
Sleep and let and let the toxins flow out if his veins?
Or stay awake and let the darkness take hold of his brain?
Take hold of his mind
His skin and his bones
His lungs and his blood
His heart and his soul
Take hold of his mind
His skin and his bones
Take hold of his lungs and blood
His heart and his soul
