lyrics

We think we’re good
And pretend it is so
Until we draw blood
Then downwards we go
We think we’re civilised
It’s just a veneer
We barely separate
Reason from fear

We heed the voice
That makes it so clear
No more compassion
Only a sneer
We stalk the weak
With empathy frayed
Becoming animal
We circle the prey

An airless room
Bare and stark
The concrete walls
All burned and marked
See good, see evil
Can’t tell them apart
Here
In the dark
In the dark
In the dark of the human heart

The heart is cruel
And heavy with hate
Only intellect
Can balance its weight
With every beat
It begs to betray
Unless we temper it
Savage we’ll stay

An airless room
Bare and stark
The concrete walls
All burned and marked
See good, see evil
Can’t tell them apart
Here
In the dark
In the dark
In the dark of the human heart

An airless room
Bare and stark
The concrete walls
All burned and marked
See good, see evil
Can’t tell them apart
Here
In the dark
In the pitch black heart
In the dark
In the dark of the human heart
