So obscene what you tell me you have see.
Frightened thoughts of what haunted you in your sleep.
They cry but can't be heard. A wall that has not words.
Your wretched world behind closed eyes, wanting more.
Know that it's not right. Know that it's not safe.
There's something wrong tonight. The world will have to wait.
Poisoned and polluted, helpless souls. Cutting throats so they smile.
Red décor. Inside your own madness, awake while you lie still.
Tormented by the demons that break your will. Know that it's not right.
Know that it's not safe. There's something wrong tonight.
The world will have to wait. Red velvet and black curtains.
Welcome to yourself. Only to find what you call heaven burns like hell.

    General Commentthe band members say that they write songs for themselvs, not to send a message or anything like that. i think more artist should try this. seems to work just fine for carfax abbey.
