Both you and I know that this monster is no longer sleeping
His dark eyes lend no light, so the moon will suffice until morning
When morning comes he will vanish, take with him your body
If you beg on your knees, he might have mercy and give you your freedom

Children running through meadows, playing catch with the leaves that are falling
They have fallen from branches that are weak from the tears they are weeping
They weep rivers that run through our souls, and we drink when we feel we are empty
And when we drank our fill, we will cut them all down, have them buried

When the old ones aren't crying, they'll be laughing as we lie there sleeping
Breathing air that's been tainted by the breath of the lies we're believing
We'll leave paths that have been walked before, but weave our own tapestries
and hang them in doors and in windows

Doors and in windows

Both you and I know that this monster is no longer sleeping
His dark eyes lend no light, so the moon will suffice until morning
When morning comes he will vanish, take with him your body
If you beg on your knees he might have mercy and give you your freedom

    My InterpretationAll I can think of is they are having an affair, it's grown out of control to where their public lives are miserable because of the lies they tell to be together.... Yet when they are together it's a bittersweet mixture of passion and guilt, with passion winning and guilt seeping in afterwards. Or I'm full of beans.
