We found a little darkness
And kept it locked inside us
A bowl of wilted flowers
To bring us back to kindness
Day and night passing time between the empty hours
We built a wall in silence
And gathered all our secrets
Assembled for what reasons
To find a hidden weakness
Day and night passing time between the empty hours
The shining star always rises with a new way to haunt us
The infinite stage that we play on is spinning above us
A thousand reasons to celebrate
The emptiest of hours and we could hardly wait
The camera caught a ray
While our lives disintegrate
Give in to reason
And find another way
Suddenly beginning
To find new words to say
The day and night
Evenly split
You gave me a gift
That got me out of it
