follow the light
it will lead you back home
how can i convince you
that you're a ghost
lost in this world
a shadow on the face of a dead child

out of this world
longing to be
out of this world

he turned out the lights
and its far too late
to try and convince you
that you're a ghost
lost in this world
a shadow on the face of a dead child

out of this world
longing to be
out of this world

death blooms and blooms like a garden around you
turning the earth to bury your life
death blooms and blooms like a garden around you
turning the earth to bury your life

tragedy smothered by the life you chose to end

    General Commentsurprised to see no comments here. This, to me, is a very important song in the history of DFD as it is probably the only one that is genuinely pretty. No oompa loompas here.

    Not really sure what it can be about, but it seems to refer to someone who has recently passed away but refuse to "go to the light", so to speak.

    There seem to be two conflicting lines, though. "he turned out the lights" seems to talk about a third person who killed the person in question, but "the life you chose to end" seems more like suicide.

    Does anyone have a theory on this?
