Another terrible recording with a sore throat and jimmyrigged recording setup. It’s rough as hell, but it will give you a basic idea of what I’ve been working on, at least.

Monsters

We all have to face the shadows

that we dream up in the dark

when no one is looking we strike the match

and wait for it to spark

(we wait for fires to start)

 

One day it will all burn down

maybe we should start running now

we’re almost out of daylight

soon we’ll have to face the night

 

turn the covers down

if you can’t sleep, do not make a sound

is the monster just a trick of the light

don’t speak unless you’re ready for a fight

there’s a candle waiting for a match

if your hands are shaking better light it fast

when no one’s looking spark turns into flame

if it falls over swear you’re not to blame

it’s only a trick of the light

find a way to win this losing fight

 

One day it will all burn down

maybe we should start running now

we’re almost out of daylight

soon we’ll have to face the night

 

No one else can tell you what to fear

with the lights turned down our demons feel so near

we can’t help but strike the match

and try to make it spark

we never know what fires we might start.

(we long for fires to start)

 

This darkness just doesn’t feel right

so we keep throwing matches at the night

But it’s only a trick of the light

It’s only a trick of the light.
