Deep down where all the lights are out
There’s only one way left
Straight through all the darkness
Where all our fears are kept

With my arms and heart open
I let myself fall
Embracing the shadows
For they are all a part of my soul

And in the dim I will dance
With each and everyone
No matter how dark the melody
Giving in to all of their songs

I let them teach me
Their screams pierce through my ears
But the closer I let them
The more I let go of my fears

At the end of our soul straining sways
After they pushed me all around
I find myself lying dizzy
On reality’s solid ground

There’s a delicate silence
After this dark, desperate fight
I pull myself together
And start walking firmly towards the light
