The night burns with a fire we cannot see
It's fire burns in our souls and makes us afraid
For we creatures of the day look out into the night
And see that which haunts our souls the most

We cringe at the sounds of the night
Run from the whispers on the winds
Cry from the sounds of our own lonely voices
Which echoes through the cold night air

And all this time the night watches and waits
For us to fall into its cold embrace
For you see the night is patient for it knows
That one day it's fire will consume us whole

"Heaven's wrath is naught but shadows compared to mankind's will to destroy life"

The Night
this is my favourite of yours, I think, 'cause I like the idea of being eaten alive by night, there's something perversely appealing about it's fire consuming us whole... a great image and much metaphorical meat. enjoyed.

A Mystery Between the Ears
the sounds of the night...
are the sounds of our Souls...
a mystery to our ears
