I have changed my mind
I think that life is boring
And I don’t suppose
You’d wanna take me away
Close your eyes
Until the early morning
And then when we wake
We’ll make our great escape

I see rings of light
I think the sky is falling
It’s a beautiful day
To be so far away
In the night we’ll
Set the world on fire
You’re afraid of the dark
And I am just afraid

Your name is called
And I can hear you waiting
For a hole in the wall
Where you can spend your time
They’ll offer a hand
And drag you farther under
You’re afraid of the dark
Cause you’re afraid to die

They’ll fill you up
Until you’re fat and greedy
I expected more
But really what can I say
The only truth to what
The preacher’s selling
Is the fear that keeps you
Coming back every day
