Black as the night, Bright as the sun
You’re the wind at my heels; you’re the hot smoking gun.
You’re holding on to shadows of doubt
Can you grasp onto the reason before your feet hit the ground

You’re holding my head under water
You’re taking my air I need to breath

You strike a flame, a light goes out
I’m the one you slowly tease, I’m the man without a sound
You’re holding on to wood for the fire
To fill the hole in your chest where your heart used to lie

If I could find a little piece of sanity and finally rest my head
You could be the gentle breeze that lifts me and carries me downwind
But rather you’re the all-consuming dark when I can hardly see…
