Pulchra Tenebris (The Beautiful Darkness)

-o-o-o-

I will drink the poison silence,

Give my heart unto the darkness

Once again

Take my fears and play them over,

Carry your cares and all your troubles,

Endure the pain

-o-o-o-

I will find the way to get there

Even if it takes forever

I'll get home

I can't fight the pain much longer

Knowing I'm not getting any stronger

And still alone

-o-o-o-

But I'll be here,

That girl in the corner

And pass the years

Living life in solitude

And loving the knife that runs me through

-o-o-o-

Slipping back under the surface,

Feeling's of this world, so worthless

Inside my mind

I've been here for far too long,

These words so cold and almost gone

I'm not alright

-o-o-o-

(Bridge:)

I soak myself in the deadly silence,

Poison ivy, blood and violence

Wondering alone in a sea of people

I can't decide if I'll unravel,

Taken in by all I can't have

And I can't breathe here but I'm free to

-o-o-o-

Be here,

That girl in the corner

I'll pass the years

Living life in solitude

And loving the knife that runs me through...

-o-o-o-

(Coda:)

The silence isn't so bad,

Let it draw you in

The beauty is unnerving,

In this darkness beneath my skin
