The White Cradle of Filth



You acted like a light guiding me correctly
The darkness slowly creeps in
It feeds your self-preserving ego
Something to blame for not having a purpose
Destroy my mind never knowing the cause
Follow the crowd leaving the weakest behind
Leading the troops to save the mentally condemned
Never knowing the light always causes the darkness
Reach out for me, I’m afraid
Reach out for me, I’m lost
Reach out for me, I need help
Reach out for me, I’ll never turn away
Reach out for me, you’re all I have
Reach out for me, you’re to blame
Reach out for me, I have no excuses left
