The Darkness In All Of Us


If madness leads to freedom
And to dark shall all things end
I hold my mind to ransom
And to dusk my soul I send

You come here speaking of the light
And all the good it brings
But in the end you shall succumb
To truth that darkness sings

You have a god to look upon
And hope that gives you meaning
But wait in time and you shall find
On your heart the darkness feeding

What is this sickness in my heart
A disease with in my soul
I just wish to give my kin
The gift of truths untold

If you believe a care is here
A treatment for my ills
I just proscribed an antidote
Much greater than you pills

Is my mind so incurable
My soul beyond repair
For all I wish to give to thee
My sullen gift to share

The gift of madness truly is
A beauty to behold
For when I give into my own mind
Our world is not so cold

If madness leads to freedom
And to dark shall all things end
I hold my mind to ransom
And to dusk my soul I send
