They hide away in the night

They can be such a fright

Hidden in the dark, shown in the light

The darkness we chose to fight


They're still there when we die

You seem them when you lie

They never say goodbye

There's no reason to try


They hold all we've done wrong

They can be short and long

They play a beautiful song

They're still there when we're gone


They take over when you're weak

They block the light you desperately seek

Be careful or the darkness will leak

Go ahead, take a peak


We were dark from the start

It's a beautiful piece of art

And this may break your heart

But don't let it tear you apart


All humans fight for freedom

But they don't see, it's all a dream

You have to see what you've done

In order to let that smile beam


The darkness doesn't define you

Live on and see it's true

You think they're here to hurt you

But it's not what they're hear to do


Whether you're a liar or a cheat

You can still smile bright

Go ahead take a seat

Let darkness cover light
