The Essence of Secrets

Deep and dark secrets, flying with wings

Block our view of reality

Can't see the sky, can't see the sun

Don't know where I've been or what I have done

They devour us whole, our souls and our minds

We cannot hide, they were designed to find

They whisper and taunt us with our darkest fears

And all we can do is cry silent tears

We will not fight them, because we can't win

We have our strengths but they know our sins

So we wait in the darkness, stalling our time

And we can do nothing as we live in our lies

We hide behind rough, icy walls

And we block out all of the world's constant calls

Cut off from the pain, cut off from the tears

Nothing is with us but the claws of our fears
