I am afraid of the dark
It really can be quite scary, you know, piss-your-pants in fear scary. They all tell you not to be afraid. For example, your mother, She's telling you there's nothing to be afraid of. She's wrong. She's telling you to ignore your gut.
One day she's gonna be headless.
Brains blown out by ignoring instinct
"No that wasn't your imagination,
Yes there was someone in the shadows…"
Now she's just a case file.
And you're wondering what sweet ma did wrong.
Yes children, it might not be all right. It might not be ok in the end.
So yes, I'm afraid of the dark
I love that I'm afraid of the dark
I know I'm still alive, awake, not muted by ignorance.
Boys and girls, it's all right to be afraid.
