Lyrics
In the perfect dark, a botticellian angel exists
The elusive partner puts her key in my hand
A fairly simple gesture, shrouded in evil
As she distorts, it becomes easy to understand
Lost in her piercing eyes
As everything around me, dies

Well, can you make the nightmares go away
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this endless night

In the choking dark, I try to move, I'm unable
A hundred thousand moving creatures, tickle my flesh
I feel the heat, it's getting harder to breathe
I feel the panic taking hold, for I'm beginning to understand
The only way I'll be saved
Is if someone breaks into my grave

Well, can you make the nightmares go away
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this endless night

Don't need it, don't want it
No more sedation, no more sedation
Don't need it, don't want it
Eradicate this endless aching inside
Don't need it, don't want it
No more sedation, no more sedation
Don't need it, don't want it
Eradicate this endless aching inside

Well, can you make the nightmares go away
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this endless night

Well, can you make the nightmares go away
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this dreadful night
