Darkness looms, but it’s your night / Rising like the moon / Darling, it’s your time to come alive / Constellations swoon // You don’t see the way you radiate / Everlasting light / Brilliantly you shine / And will you promise me that you’ll stay // Golden Forever // Circling the guilded cosmos / Echo of the sun / Most enchanting song ever composed / Glory’s just begun // You don’t see the way you radiate / Everlasting light / Brilliantly you shine / And will you promise me that you’ll stay // Golden Forever // Lights were meant to shine / You’re a stroke of genius, don’t you know / You don’t have to hide / Baby, you’re on fire; look at you glow // Golden Forever //
BAD BLOOD (IS GOING AROUND)
Well, hello, faithful friend in agony / Your dark decor is just, oh, so welcoming / It’s been awhile since we indulged our misery / I’m out of grace and I’d love some company // Sitting here, we’ve exchanged our pleasantries / You serve the gall; why, thank you for the bitter drink / Pass the poison, discuss the latest tragedy / Don’t hold back, dear, this is all just tongue-in-cheek // Bad blood is going around / If you’ve got a grudge then you’d better watch out / Cause mercy ain’t easy when bitterness abounds / Bad blood is going around / You can’t be too careful or word will get out / Cause mercy ain’t easy when bitterness abounds / Yeah mercy ain’t easy when bitterness abounds // We set our plans for revenge and honestly / Stubbornness doesn’t cover up our grief / But was it you who taught me that self-sabotage could set me free? / To let the rage be fuel for antipathy? // It’s been nice, but I probably should go / All I can taste is the burn of vitriol / I can’t forget, but I will have to let go / Or resentment will destroy all of this growth
I’m just a drifter—can’t say I’m proud / Preferred to wander instead of chasing clouds / But can you blame me, in this barren land / For going crazy, just sifting sand? // Stuck in the desert of my own mind / Thought that I would be better off this time / But I’m trapped—and I’m just about to unwind / Scares me to think that I chose this life // You know, I welcomed the apathy / Befriended doubt that rolled in like waves of tumbleweed / How many times have I chosen to wait / Longing to settle on the fringe of grace? // How long?
Shame, for shame, you’ve got all the fame / The hallelujahs in your name don’t ring quite the same / and everyone knows who to blame in your twisted game // Oh you think you’re such a sage / trying to stir up all this rage / Wouldn’t you like to see me fall right off the stage / or be trapped inside your cage? / Oh, put me out of my misery / You think it’s some kind of sympathy / Oh, you want to put me out of my misery / If misery loves company, you’re right to worry //I’m done keeping up in your sick race / I refuse to participate / Oh, I’m tired of trying to save face / So I quit the masquerade / Oh, the time has come to break these chains / Your authority’s beginning to wane / Your methods are certifiably insane / Today ends your reign; this heart wasn’t meant to be tamed // I don’t need your sympathy / Nor your toxic energy / You can no longer own me / Finally I see I was already free
I’m searching for you in the darkness / I’m searching for you in the night / I’m searching for you in the shadows / Cause everywhere I go is light / Yeah everywhere I go is light // I’m coming back for you / I’m coming back // I’m searching for you in the wilderness / And all the places one can hide / I'm searching for you in the harsh cold world / And I will never leave your side / No, I will never leave your side // Oh, you look everywhere / Oh, I was already there // Every flower, every tree / Every bird and every bee / Every rock and mountaintop / Every ocean, every drop / Every whisper, every why / Every laugh and every cry / Every moment, every breath / Every second, life and death // I’m here
