lyrics

The enticing night is cool and black, no star wheels in the sky
The stalls are mute and shuttered, but the dark still has eyes
Faces inked and faded twisted 'round pale arms
Bleeding out their ceaseless hope, the dark will fill them yet

In the darkness, see a future
With no aging, no regret
Close your Eye and follow slowly
Come tomorrow, cheat your death

Hear the Dust Witch at the window, whispering her mind
A tale of greed and betrayal, of terror in the dark
Now I see a chink in the armor, the tender tendon bare
The ropes that once appeared as freedom now tighten ‘round my neck

Something wicked this way comes
Look the demon in the eye
Something wicked this way comes
Comes this way to die

Earth is blistered by the sun in fierceness of its love
And if you had to take it all at once you’d break
Yeah, it would break you, but better burned then bound by chains
Enslaved in your own mind

Don’t concern yourself with answers, don’t look inside too much
What you find will surely kill you, even worse boy, it would break you

In this maze of mirrors, you can never be too sure
If what you see before you is something wicked or something pure
Until you risk the cutting shards, the searing of the sun
And laugh away at all your efforts, to find that all is one

Finally an answer, something wicked sounding this way comes
