She breathes in slow
Another day to tow
The Devil takes his toll
She swallows idle tears

Another yesterday
Becomes a runaway
And now today is long
Tomorrow never comes

The darkness that I see
Brings on a comfortable madness
No adorable sanity
Oh, fancy free
The gun was meant for me
To feel delightful sadness
In a trip of eternity
The end of me

Her fire flickers now
And coldness fills her fear
The dreaded aftermath
Will barely make a splash
It’s so very cold
It’s so very cold

The tunnel’s not so bright
They said there would be light
Oh, what have I done?
Oh, what have I done?

She sees that this is wrong
But, now it won’t be long
There’s nothing left to say
She does it anyway

The darkness that I see
Brings an unbearable lightness
To my spiritual hideaway
Oh, blessed be
The fear will set you free
You see I’m raping this fantasy
Of horrible ecstasy
Deliver me

The deed is done
What has she done?
The lamb lies sleeping
In silence

The darkness that I see
Will be the end of me
