After the sunset I hide
Nothing can hurt me there
No tears to be shed
No flesh to be torn

The castle shields me from the war
Prevents me from hurting
Even if just for a little while

The castle is what I love most
Kissing the dark of the sky
Dancing in the moonlight
Even if just for a little while

Making me look up from my scars
Getting me to dwell on the little piece of life left in me
In the castle, I am alive, I am home
Even if just for a little while

When the sun goes up
I have to return
To the **** I was born in
Getting beaten to filaments

All the hate flows back in me
Insulating me
Dragging me down deeper and deeper
Burning me to ash

In the dark heat I long
To the cherry nights under the stars
And in the dark paradise I prance
Under the bright glazing sun
