Be my darkest nightmare-
the position must be filled.
The day-to-day won't scare me now;
I want something that will.
Maybe it's a secret,
hidden deep inside my heart;
but once revealed, you can be sure
it'll tear me the fuck apart!
Maybe it's a memory,
simply eclipsed within my mind-
and daily I'll go searching
for things I don't want to find.
Maybe it's when I realize
that I'm a broken, evil man;
and no matter what is said to me,
I refuse to understand.
And no matter where you point me to,
I'm finding my own way-
ignoring the consequences and not caring what they say.
And if I'm not a lifeless wreck come the closing of the day,
won't you embody all my darkness
as to keep the light at bay?
