lyrics

When I opened it up,
I didn't feel bad.
A wooden box
Bound and gagged,
Calling to my idle hands.

But, oh, they scream and they faint and they gasp.
They're mistaking the dark for something ominous.
They're mistaking the dark for something ominous.

Free at last,
It flung its head back
And the sigh it let out
Flew on ancient wings.
It covered the floodlights,
The audience couldn't see
And they cowered and clung to their miserable seats.

They always assume the worst
When the room goes black.
They're mistaking the dark for something ominous.
They're mistaking the dark for something ominous.

I let my eyes adjust.
I let my eyes adjust.
I let my eyes adjust,
Widening,
Welcoming
The endlessness.

The shadows cast upon us ask questions they fear,
So they draw the curtain before the stars start to appear.

It's only the night sky they're shielding their eyes from.
