a song about repressing memories
Fall silent: These are the hands that dropped you
         The feet that turned and run
         The knee that was always bending
         Like words upon my tongue
Fall silent: These are the eyes that saw you
         And the head that turned away
         The burning eyes that pierced inside you
         And the face that faces away

Silence, Do not listen
Blame them, so you can get away

Fall silent: These are the thoughts that snared you
         And the words you wouldn’t speak
         That grew and grew inside you
         Like a serpent in the deep
Fall silent: This is the heart that beat you
         With many strokes across your back
         The steady thump that thumped inside you
         As you fell under the attack
         
        We are the way, we are the light
         We are the candle in the night
         The day that your dreams  awoke
         The frabjous day locust spoke
         We are the way, we are the light
         We are the candle in the night
         The day that your dreams  awoke
         The frabjous day locust spoke
         
Spiral pathway inside to a place that can’t be remembered
Close the last way with a lie, sealing those distant chambers
[Screams] drifting through the air, they are soon forgotten
[Screams] you were not ever there, memory hollows and rotten

Silence, Do not listen
Blame them, so you can get away

(solo)

(spoken word-)
"Men die nightly in their beds, wringing the hands of ghostly confessors, and looking them piteously in the eyes-die with despair of heart and convulsion of throat, on account of the hideousness of mysteries which will not suffer themselves to be revealed. Now and then, alas, the conscience of man takes up a burden so heavy in horror that it can be thrown down only into the grave. And thus the essence of all crime is undivulged.”- E A Poe


Fall silent: This is the memory that failed you
         Wouldn’t forget so easily
         In your dreams you’re always watching
         See it all so lazily
Fall silent:          In your dreams your always falling
         And when you wake you feel the same
         You can't understand what you’ve done
         But you know you are to blame
         
We are the way, we are the light
         We are the candle in the night
         The day that your dreams  awoke
         The frabjous day locust spoke
         We are the way, we are the light
         We are the candle in the night
         The day that your dreams  awoke
         The frabjous day locust spoke
