The darkness is as dense as the pelts of beasts circling the fire's dying edge
All gathered around for the child swaddled in ash
A pink ember of innocence
And the monsters mouths foam
High on the sound of a newborns scream
And hungry for the after birth
I was born into a monsters mouth
That daddy stopped from chomping down
And tucked inside warm dragons breath
Safe beside Eve's hallowed chest
Tick....tick......tick.....
Dear God, where did the light go? 
It's buried in six feet of ash in dummy town
Why?.....
.....is all a man that tastes like cigarettes can ask
Bitter, cold, alone.....
Hello? Hello, is anyone out there? 
As silhouettes dance across my bedroom floor
What are you.......
The city streets are busy, I can't be late for work
But the radio's busted
Hey.....Jack......when are....co-.......home?
Where is home? Where am I?
On four paws under a grey sky
Oooooooo what a beautiful change of scene
Mom? Mom! I can smell you! 
......I'm sorry ma'am there's been an accident
Teddy are you sure we're safe in here? 
What's the quickest way home? 
Jack, don't you remember.....
He loves me.....
He loves me not.....
He loves me.....
He loves me not.....
Dear God, why does it have to be this way? God? Are you even listening to.....
The sea...Clyde did you know it could sing? 
Clyde.....clyde....clyde?
Do you remember.....remember.....remember....
The ground shaking
Earth breaking
It's gonna swallow us whole and
Down, down, down, I didn't know I could fall this far
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned, and I don't know how to stop
Jack, why don't you just stay home? 
I don't remember.....
You keep that up you're gonna end up.....
Chewing on my teeth in the alley
How did I end up here? 
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned, and I- 
Jack, why don't you just stay home? 
I can't remember.....
You act like you haven't seen your best friend kill himself a hundred times
Isn't that enough? Jack?....Jack! 
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. 
Hello? Is anyone there? 
Is this a dream? Are dreams always this cold? I don't....
Remember....remember....remember....
The ground shaking
Earth breaking
It's gonna swallow us whole and
Down.....down.....down.....
Is this the beginning, Clyde? 
Or is this the end...
