dedicated to all for whom the Dark has too fierce a grip.

lyrics

Keeping Watch

we’ll keep watching over you

yr scarred n yr bruised
n ya scream ya scream at the dark
n ya won as many times
as ya lost it
but you won’t fall apart
even tho life broke yr heart

ya carved something indecent
on a tree in the park
it made ya smile… yeah

ya lost yr last job
but ya found another
n yr friends all left town
one after the other
yr boss he don’t understand
what yr up against
n ya hate how disgusting
yr apartment is

ya woke up in the morning n
reached for the pills
the ones that wd do the most damage…ha!

we’ll keep watching over you

then ya thought of yr dad n yr mom
n yr brother n sister

and we’ll keep watching over you

amazing grace
how sweet it is
