This is where it starts, take a backseat to my bleeding heart
I hear you scream my name as it falls apart
The words come up from your gut, get stuck in your head
Too scared to say aloud what you feel instead
Deep inside your brain in your mind where your demons hide
They’re coming after your soul, they’re here to tear you alive
You’re at home all alone with the skeletons

This is where you keep me in line,
I’ll lose it and break down again
To keep you safe in the dark
Hide them away,
Those demons stay close through the day
To leave you safe in the dark

Keeping me here with your lasting impression
Holding the cards till I force your confession and
You keep me safe in the dark

Keep us in line
Leave us at home
Alone in the dark for you

Keep us safe,
We are the demons, the ones that you fear,
Hiding in darkness for when you come near
Keep us safe
Falling and failing and losing again
Hiding in darkness to rip you within
Keep us safe
