15. there is truth between my lies

don't you wish
for less secrets
between us?

don't you wish
for more lies
between us?

please stop
and listen;
there is truth
between my lies

you can always
follow me down
into the deep
and the dark;

don't listen to my words;
listen to my actions
"I bow to ChildOfNowhere, my one and only master."

16. where they belong

don't listen to my lies;
i swear, it's like a thin
red thread
weaved between the shadows
and the flames
where the truth remains
and the lies are shrouded in
the deep and the dark
where they belong.
"I bow to ChildOfNowhere, my one and only master."

17. demons

dream of fire and shadow
with me
where only the darkest souls
are touched,
dragged down into the deep
and the dark
where only demons
reside.

18. between the shadow and the flame

i see, between the shadow
and the flame
a beauty like no other;
she spins and twirls,
unaware of watching eyes;
a beauty like no other
with eyes like the sky
and hair as dark as the night;
i see, between the flame
and the shadow
a beauty like no other;
she twirls and spins,
unaware of the demons
watching
until it's too late.
"I bow to ChildOfNowhere, my one and only master."

19. demons in my head

there are demons
in my head
and in my heart
but don't worry;
they won't drag
you down
with me.

there are demons
in my heart
and in my head;
you should
probably worry
because they
will drag you
down.

20. drag you down

i can hear screaming
in my mind's eye;
i can see a world
far, far away
caught in an eternal
struggle between
the light
and the dark;

do you hear the screaming too?
don't let it drag you down into
the dark and the deep.

21. come away with me

come away with me,
my child
into the deep
and the dark
where demons dwell
and
angels fear to tread;

come away with me,
my child,
into the shallows
and the light
where angels dwell
and
demons fear to tread;

come away with me,
my faerie child
into shadow
and flame
where neither dwells
and
both fear to tread.

22. wings

i see wings rise above me
made of feathers
and down
but there are traces
of rot and corruption
upon them, where
scales and leather
lurks.

i see wings rise above me
made of leather
and scales
but there are traces
of god and redemption
upon them, where
feathers and down
lurks.

sometimes i wish
that these wings
would carry me up
or drag me down
so that i may be with
you and
all that we love.

23. angels in my heart

there are demons
in my head
and
angels in my heart;
sometimes i wanna
carve them out
but then i remember
that they are
part of me and
i cannot give up
my angels and
my demons;

i refuse to give
them up;
not for you
or anyone;

there are angels
in my head
and
demons in my heart
please let me
carve them out
and lay their corpses
on silver and gold
and sacred rock
so that i
may be free
of them both.

24. gods and devils

do you believe in
gods and devils?
or the angels and their
demons?
i believe in both
and neither;
i have my own demons,
my own devils
and very different kinds
of angels,
but when it comes to gods,
it begs a question;
am i a god or
am i a devil?

25. all my desires

bring me gold
and bring me silver,
bring me rubies
and bring me all that glitters;
hide them deep down in the dark
where only shadows
and monsters lurk
and all my demons
come to rest;

bring me blood
and bring me flesh,
bring me bones
and bring me all the renders;
hide them deep down in the light
where only radiance
and courage lurk
and all my angels
come to rest;

bring me gold
and bring me blood,
bring me rubies
and bring me flesh,
bring me all the things
that glitter and rend
from bones and rocks
and secret glens;
hide them all deep down
in the shadows
where monsters and demons,
and power lurks;
where all my desires,
dark and deep,
come to rest.

26. everything is allowed; nothing is forbidden

all my desires
are dark and deep,
hiding behind kind eyes
and flirty smiles;

my mind is a maze
full of twists and turns
and tormented souls
where nothing is as it seems
and everything is allowed;

all my desires
are sweet and shallow,
but they hide behind dark looks
and wicked grins;

my mind is a forest
full of light and ancient,
forgotten things
where all is as it seems
and nothing is forbidden.

will you allow me to bring you down
into my filth and wallow in
my misery and my dark desires
with me?
i promise you, you'll want to
follow me down
"I bow to ChildOfNowhere, my one and only master."

27. dare to try

the devil can't take me
til i'm dead
and god won't dare to try;
my soul is dark
and twisted
beyond your human eyes.

god can't take me
til i'm dead
and the devil won't dare to try;
my soul is pure
and radiant
beyond your human eyes.

dark yet pure,
radiant yet twisted;
my soul is there
for the taking
but god and the devil
won't dare to try.

28. i don't belong

if i don't belong in
heaven's gilded halls
or hell's burning pits
where do i belong?

why won't god or
the devil take me
to their favoured
realms if i don't belong?

maybe i should ask odin
and valhalla
or perhaps the gods
on olympus?

maybe i should ask hades
to guard my soul down
in elysium
or hela down in
niflheim to keep
me safe from limbo.

i don't belong in
heaven or hell,
or any other hall of
light or dark;
i belong in the place
in-between,
where shadows
and flames dance
interwoven
between fallen pillars and
broken hearths.

29. nilfheim

i should hope that
when i
cross the river styx
all the gods,
old and new,
will be waiting for me
and i
should hope that
when i meet them
at the river styx
that they will greet
me in kind
and show me all
the wonders of
niflheim.
