Rub the stones or strike a match
Burn down this roof or light the floor
But put some light right in here
And show me the way straight to the door.
Forever I’ve been stuck in this abysmal darkness
Running around in search of that elusive light
Frantically breaking all that comes in front
Scampering to find the darkness of the night.
Dead as ever in this bottomless pit
I raise my hands to cling to some creeper
Gasping I grasp the cold thin air
Cutting through my body as I fall deeper.
Aghast I stiffen with the absence of love
The heart just beats while lungs just breathe
Without a meaning this machine runs along
Lies my soul in this loveless sheathe.
