Can you hear the wind whisper of grace and guiltless games?
In this house can you hear it: water dripping, floorboards creaking?
Is this what you wanted to be?
Is this why you left home?
Is this how you got it so bad?
Is this who you think you are?

Round and round til you’re dizzy; you are a sitting duck
Anxiety ain’t no quicksand
Up and down, now you’re homely
You gotta stand up
What monsters! What monsters!
Blood runs beneath their skin, but not into their hearts
What monsters! What monsters!
Don’t fear the dark

Monsters are severing what should be lovely
No need to fear the night
These beasts are cryptic and cynical
Off the map

It’s so easy to see aimlessly--circles in roles
Characters carrying everything with no purpose when purpose is everything
It’s so easy to be changelessly silent in something so comfortable and meek
Or something neglected--something forgotten

Monsters surrendering
Every spell has lifted
Can you see in the dark?
Can you feel?
Would you risk anything?

Is this what you’re gonna be?
Is this why you’re leavin’ here?
Is this how you got is so bad?
Is this who you think you are?
Do you know who you are?
