Dark Corners of the night

Beelzebub Jones

 

Some days 

I can feel the horns growing 

Some days 

I wake in a house of mirrors 

most are concave 

convex 

none are crystal clear 

did you see the witches in the woods? 

did you see the witches in the woods? 

wander 

just be patient in the mazes 

sometimes the path leads you to the strangest places 

I see snakes in the garden 

I hear wolves in the walls 

in the cellar there's a doorway leading straight into hell 

but I hardly ever go down there 

no, hardly at all 

 

my view 

staring out from this black pit 

what do I miss living in the abyss? 

try hard not to smash a fragile piece 

cloven hooves tap dance on thin glass sheets 

we're standing on a jenga tower collapsing 

the golden gate is breaking loose 

someday the sun the moon the stars will all fall around our heads 

is it a future that we're given 

or a sickness we choose? 

 

dirty ground hold me down 

angel of light 

my head hurts so bad tonight 

and they're coming from the east 

and they're coming from the west 

from the belly of the beast 

from the sparrow's empty nest 

tell the children that they ought to settle down 

tell the children that they ought to settle down 

 

one day 

we'll break through these mental fetters 

instead of breaking we get better 

one day 

we'll step out from our house of horrors 

finally start moving forward
