Lyrics

It seems like
A life time ago
That I saw the gold
Sunshine glow
No, it doesn't reach
Down below

Shadows become the light
Here where the monsters hide
Normal is just a dream
For all the ghosts like me

I hate my metal bones
My bones and gears creak in my chest
My chest forever cold
A cold and maddening descent
Descending down so far
Fall farther 'til there's nothing left
I'm left here in the dark
The dark
I dance to forget

This is my
Penitentiary
Fractured apart from the world
Where I want to be
Lock the door
Throw away the key

And let my dance resume
Down in a pitch black room
Normal is just a dream
For all the ghosts like me
Like me

I hate my metal bones
My bones and gears creak in my chest
My chest forever cold
A cold and maddening descent
Descending down so far
Fall farther 'til there's nothing left
I'm left here in the dark
The dark
I dance to forget
I dance to forget

Come now
Dance with me
As the song plays
Down down
Dance with me
Stuck on replay

Come now
Dance with me
As the song plays
Down down
Dance with me
Stuck on replay

I hate my metal bones
My bones and gears creak in my chest
My chest forever cold
A cold and maddening descent
Descending down so far
Fall farther 'til there's nothing left
I'm left here in the dark
The dark
I dance to forget
I dance, I dance, I dance
I dance to forget
I dance, I dance
I dance to forget
