Darkness Soothing

(Lyrics - Stefan Kutranov; Music - Kerryn Wood, Stefan Kutranov)

Light of day, fading away Still they struggle & fight So they can maintain their play Fighting to keep the power of day

Suffering now from their revels Lying in torment, themselves destroyed Watching the others take their glory The others to which it truly belongs

Chorus: The power that calls them Calls for its need The darkness is soothing & Complete in itself

The glory they stole in their need Can never belong to such as them Loaned out temporarily at most But used only to mock what they are

Feeling lost they gaze around Wondering at folly allowed In their weakness & desire To consume & corrupt them

To opened eyes, all is clear Power perceived was no more Than a veil of beauty drawn Across disease & undying filth

Knowing they never belong Blazing power they desire Knowing the truth of their dreams To beg for forgiveness they need

The darkness that called them That gave them their birth Awaits their return w/ Arms of forgiveness open to all

The darkness is soothing, an old friend still true Shameful but happy they return to their home The beauty of childhood destroyed to the full The wisdom obtained allowing true happiness
