For 13 days.. we have trained and trained
We're learning to walk again, we're learning to stretch our skin

Every time THEY bring us back to life
Little jars come down from the shelves
Every time we feel the sting
Every time we feel the Blood going in

Our eyes are now our minds
Our Souls.. are in our magical skin
The Blood THEY use must come from our own
Living just an hour, then we fade again

"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die again
"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die and die and die again

Darkness...Darkness

Every night Victoria and I
We spend what's left of the Blood in our systems
Sitting on opposite shelves
Talking with our eyes, trying to remember
It is all that we've got

Our eyes are now our minds
Our Souls.. are in our magical skin
We're living through our memories
And it's worth it...

"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die again
"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die and die and die again

Darkness...Darkness
The Puppet Master is hear again

[solo: Andy]

[P.M.:] "Tonight you will dance for me Puppet Girl
Tonight.. no strings attached"

"But I can't, never did I dance, oh I don't have a chance"

[P.M.:] "Dance"

"I take a step, oh I try my best
I stumble into the shelves with all the jars"
6...6 of them coming down
Broken glass and Puppet life is on the floor

"In the Darkness we live out lives"
[P.M.:] "Send her far away, far away from here"
"In the Darkness we live our lives"
[P.M.:] "To the other theater.. tomorrow morning she must be gone
Send her to Berlin...send that Puppet to Berlin"
