  • I ain't afraid of the dark
    I ain't worried about the savages loose in the night
    But you show me the things I've done
    And girl you know I get the chills all down my crooked spine
    Kill the lights
    I've seen too much
    If so below, then as above
    Lord knows I've seen enough
    It's crystal clear and uglier than I thought
    Desperate and lonely juggernauts

    Illuminate the filth with the glow of your righteous heart
    Shine a light upon the world
    And i'll scurry back to the dark
    Lights on, rats out
    Somebody turn on the light, keep the rest down
    The uppers lower me into the hive
    The lights are low us weeds come alive
    Downers pick me up into the ditch
    I cannot scratch this never-ending itch
    Salvation is a hell of a thing

    Pull the dust up over your eyes
    I don't believe I'll have a revelation with all these secrets of mine
    And if I ever have a holy vision
    It's going to be two at a time
    I got so much soul in me that I'm barely alive
    I've been down and out for so long baby I can't be revived
    I ain't afraid to be long lost
    I ain't bothered by the silence, the cold, or the roads that stretch for miles
    But you show me the man I've become
    And girl you know I want to tie up a rope and crack my crooked spine
    Kill the lights
    I've seen too much Publisher: MOTHERSHIP MUSIC PUBLISHING
