I feel more at home in the dark
'Cause I can't see my face
Feeling alive in the dark
Yes I know my place
I smile at the eyes in the dark
'Cause I know they're smiling
Only want to die in the dark
The dark is so beguiling
Obstacles in my way
I have to die every time
I try to live, today
The clock's too tired to chime
The way she knows
It's time to kill
The way she goes
When she's had her fill
This placebo medication
Mediochre celebration
Only trying to get by
Until I'm told it's time to die
But then the strain
Of trying yet again
To hide the burns on my arm
This strain will do me harm
Stanza after stanza
I'm slowly breaking down
Until this pain expands a
Smile into a permanent frown
