Darkness Dancer

Red and gold and glittering fire
Eyes beneath a mask
Sweet lips of a liar
Feet that move so fast

Graceful strokes and flowing hair
Watch the darkness dance
Perfect balance walking on air
She captures every glance

Low sweeps and perfect poise
Swish across the floor
Silence drowns the deafening noise
Watch the darkness soar

Truth behind the lying disguise
Flickering eyes on fire
A dress like a swarm of fireflies
A zeal that will never tire

The night will die and the sun will rise
And the darkness dancer gone
So upon night watch for those fire eyes
Because she'll keep dancing on

Feed the Flames

Locked far away in the darkest cell
An unknown darkness waits
Frozen in an endless hell
Fighting fear and hate

Smoke and fire burn above it
While a tornado rages within
Deep below the ground splits
And hope falls in

Dead leaves burn to crisps
Fear feeds the flames
Smoke trails and frozen wisps
Bound together in chains

Come here honey and smile at me
Let us burn together
Let us set this darkness free
Calm this stormy weather

We're down here where we belong
A place we'll never escape
But we know how to stay strong
We know how to love this place

Lady of the Night

Hair all black and shining blue
A voice that haunts the mind
Eyes that sees right through you
Words that make you blind

A web so strong but still full of light
A soul so bruised and dark
She will rule your day and night
You will bear her mark

She smiles through pain
And dies throughout her life
A fire in pouring rain
The blade of her own knife

You will follow her to the end
Give your life to see her live
Still she has no friends
No mistakes she will forgive

She's a piece of night and day
A truth you cannot trust
A dark light that never fades
Iron that never rusts

She loves this life
Will never leave
Use her own knife
She won't bleed

She lies in wait for the final stone
The one strong enough to kill her
The one who can save her alone
Her savior and killer

The Lost Bay

A glittering shadow covers the bay
Pretty lights diffuse in mist
It isn't night but no longer day
This bay should not exist

Electric flashes crackle the air
Raindrops singe the ground
Trees are crying their leaves bare
Secrets wait to be found

The flood that comes through is a raging fire
The wind an explosion of storms
Ashes keep piling higher
Creating more deathly forms

The empty silence sings its tune
The ground begins to tremble
Far beneath the dying moon
Let everything dissemble

Close every single gate
Destroy each leading track
Leave them to their fate
Don't dare look back

Sword of Shadows

A shadow sweeps across the sand
Soft laughter fills the air
Giant waves crash land
Against shores of despair

Winds pick up and choke your breath
Darkness tries stealing the light
The cold drops down to death
You prepare to fight

Your sword is just a blade of fire
Your shield a circle of flame
Don’t you stop don’t you tire
Just focus on your aim

Mist creeps through dim light
Drums beat in the distance
Something isn’t right
The presence seems omniscient

It will draw you in and tear you apart
Don’t forget how to fight
Remember to protect your heart
Remember how to hide

You know the perfect time to run
You know just when to fall
This is what you’ve become
A fighter for them all

Each Heartbeat is On Fire

Reach through the iron gate
Feel for the broken shards
Even though it’s far too late
Bring them back through the bars

Slowly fit the heart together
Ignore the holes and cracks
Know it will never get better
You will never get it back

Slowly put it back inside
Move back into the dark
All that’s left is to hide
And survive through every mark

Eyes are closed and thoughts shut down
Walls keep rising higher
The darkness tries so hard to drown
Each heartbeat is on fire

So Hard to Breathe

The darkest light is hard to see
The waves keep tossing on
Sometimes it’s so hard to breathe
When you have never won

When in every step you slip and fall
In every breath you choke
With every blink you hit a wall
In every sight there’s smoke

Behind every smile there is a wound
Behind every lie, there’s truth
Every later comes too soon
Behind your fate is only you

You control the very sight you see
You control the words you hear
Either you hide or you break free
Don’t be trapped by fear
