lyrics

strange darkness

come close but beware. these bones are made of thin air, blown out at the seams, these ghosts is well fitting. but they don’t much like the mold of a body grown old.
so be careful, please be gentle with me. i got a black heart, like a stone cold effigy. yeah be careful, please be gentle with me. i’m drawn and quartered, i’m in bed with the enemy.
i’ve taken your side. i was only born there to hide. i’m afraid i’ve taken more than my fair share of the ride. don’t know why we all can’t go about dressed in white. instead of walking home unto these beds of hot coals glowing red in the night. but for now we all just go about searching for gold, while the children learn to play with all of our poisons of old, they just doing as they told. so be be careful please be gentle with me, i’m feeling weary, like a high lonesome melody.
yeah be careful, please be gentle with me. swear i’m not a bad person, no,
just got a strange darkness living in me.
