Inside they’re cold.
Why is there nothing left to hold?
We’re conscious of their thoughts
Could this be you?

Tired and old
Blind from the incandescent Moulds
The tears around their eyes
Could this be you?

A silhouette booms, a strong frightening laugh
As you hide in the dark, all alone now at last
Add light to the shade, you won’t hide for long
For I’ll be the one who was laughing all along

We’ll just hope that the rope
That we tied around their arms won’t come loose
Please don’t come loose
And the hope that we’ve roped
That we’ve tied around their hearts like a noose
Please don’t come loose

A thief that takes the world and fakes the words
Makes it so we’ll never know
There’s more to life than only living
A piece to fit their mould,
What we’re told makes it so we’ll never know
We’re worth more than they know

They’re only words, a useless phrase
We are melody, movement and grace

We are, at heart, dancing
In a condescending sense of pride
Only to pretend

White ivory eyes upon me
We can take them
One by one
