There is nowhere to hide,
When the dark comes alive;
And it's all in your mind;
And they whisper inside...
[What is offered: denied.]
In each breath that you take;
In between every sigh;
In each fear you can't shake;
Where the whispers reside...
She stared down her demons - dead in the eyes;
So softly they murmured (such beautiful lies);
They taunted, declaring she must choose a side.
For in light and in darkness her soul did reside...
[deep in the dark, where her monsters would hide]
Behind the masking of dark she wore light;
Her demons - like shadows - were lost to the night.
Though deep in her heart (in a place born of fear),
The darkness would beckon, enticing her near.
In each ragged breath;
Caught between every sigh;
In each little death, where the whispers reside...
And she said she did know she was wicked of heart;
The monster within, recognized from the start.
And though she had witnessed, she never did fear;
The darkness that fell, as the whispers drew near...
They beckoned: she followed.
[down into the black]
There was nowhere to hide.
[there was no turning back]
For it was all in her mind, she no longer denied;
The whispers, whispers, that echoed inside...
