The Man Of The Night

Too often have I met you
In this dark ally I find
The ghosts of the little girl I left behind
You greet me with a flash of pearly whites
You take this trembling hand of mine

They say light will guide you home
The only thing guiding me is the man of the night
The light looks great, but I know it’s my fate
To follow the man of the night

As we move about, I see others watching me
Piercing my soul with their gaze
The same ones who would have a hard time with me if I said I was gay 
This time they love me and don’t want me to leave
I feel a tug on my arm, it’s time to move away from their please.

They say light will guide you home
The only thing guiding me is the man of the night
The light looks great, but I know it’s my fate
To follow the man of the night

I see our destination is almost in sight
I see a footstool next to the rope on a tree
He pushes me forward
A reminder that this is the only way
I can finally be free from the demons that are haunting me

They say light will guide you home
The only thing guiding me is the man of the night
The light looks great, but I know it’s my fate
To follow the man of the night

I step on the stool
I look straight in his eyes
The rope around my neck had been tied
I take one last breath before I say my goodbyes
When I look down, I see something I recognize

Those demons of hell, they were waiting for me.
The same ones that tormented my being
I looked up in fear as I realized the man was never my friend.

They say light will guide you home
The only thing guiding me is the man of the night
The light looks great, but I know it’s my fate
To follow the man of the night
But it was never my fate, it was never my call
I won’t follow that man. I will conquer them all.
