Darkness blackness



Become naked before me
Peel off your clothes so I can see

No more lies only exposed skin
Pretense is replaced by the sin

Your truth is ugly underneath
Bloodstained sword pulled from its sheath

Lay back now and take me inside
In your nakedness I will hide

I will forget who I am in you
We can become one out of two

Tell me all the things you’re ashamed of
It won’t matter because I’m in love

The darkness in you pours out like night
But I hate the sun so let’s turn out the light

This is ecstasy as we scream
An unending nightmarish dream

We lie here naked in bed
Finally, nothing left unsaid
