Dark Arts

a wicked wind blew 
and it came along our way 
like a dark star rising, 
and it was the day 
birds fell from the sky 
and the leaves had left the trees 
yeah, you didn't seem to notice 
but it washed over me


once i asked you to fill an empty space 
to live inside the shadow of the life i had to face 
and though you took me, and made me feel alive 
i wonder just how much of me that you have helped to die 

just like a burn will linger 
she crept between my fingers 
and to my body she has now become 
a new disease 

a fog to cloud my vision 
more like an apparition 
she made a mess and now 
abandoned me 

so i had a revelation 
cause i found a new location 
a place inside your heart 
you thought that i would never see 

without a hint or notion 
you wrought without emotion 
a brand new world for you 
to toy with me 

so i thought i'd burn the bridge you made for me 
but when i did, all our love was left behind 
now what we've got to show is a memory 
and just like ghosts, it will keep me up at night 

and now i know 
that you are waiting somewhere 
watching me to see what i will do 

so i will go 
no, i won't stay to bother you 
the one thing that i counted on 
that i believed was true!
