You Make the Darkness
By Tom Foster
Woke up, fed up, so sick of this scene Woke up fed up can’t do this anymore
Wandering two steps forward, fallin’ back three Just waiting for the end
Finding there’s no time to sit between. No longer need to settle the score
-The darkness rises- -The darkness is here-
Livin’ day to day with the sickness deep inside You’ve fallen prey to rage
Goin’ crazy wanting to know You’ll never be the same
Is there somewhere safe that I can hide I’ve locked you in my cage
Before you slip and I just blow. The darkness knows your name.
You let the dark roll out of me You made the dark come out of me
You make it boil inside It swallowed up my mind
You break the bonds and set it free Now you will have to see
Your ignorance I won’t abide. And then be left behind.
Through the days I walk
And the nights I crawl
Going out of my mind as the thoughts I stalk
Just to withstand it all.
-My darkness is straining-
The hatred seeks its mark
You stand in the path alone
It will see you in the dark
Go on admit you’re gone.
You make the dark rise out of me
You make it strain and pull
It’s out for all to see
It’s filling up my skull.
-Let it go-
Don’t wanna feel no more
-Give it back-
And even up the score.
