The Only Outside

When all the lights go out And I sit back, and sigh I expel my vices yet hold on too tight   I breathe them all back in All tight and crystal-blue Translucent, provocative as a church pew   Whispering in my ears Every "s" like a ssssnake Sensing something smoldering and saturates   Ears...

She looked across the world and saw naught... The Darkness that was once warred against now overtaking the hearts of the Innocent.
