Tonight, your conscience comes calling
Last November comes knocking

(Pause)

It’s just turned two
All alone in your bed, except your conscience and you

Time to deal with the shame
You have no one to blame

Because at night
The mind takes flight

No place to hide
Nowhere to seek refuge

(Pause)

Time to dwell on the selfish needs
That causes you to do those dirty deeds

To all that have been taunted
It’s time to be haunted

Nobody thinks you’ll ever pay
For all the nasty things you say

 
Never caring, about the lives in need of repair
After the damage you’ve done

But what’s hidden from others
Now comes to light
The silence around you is gripping
As the darkness is piercing

(Pause)

At night
The mind takes flight

No time to heal
To your conscience it’s time to kneel

So now you’ll remember
What you did last November

No escape from yourself
As you pray for daylight…………………..
