  • And just before midnight
    You came into our room
    A demon so frightening
    Both ancient and new

    Gonna leave the light on for you
    Gonna leave the light on for you
    Gonna leave the light on for you

    You're a creature of sorrow
    You're the beast we made
    You scratch at our sadness
    'Til we're broken and frayed

    Gonna leave the light on for you
    Gonna leave the light on for you
    Gonna leave the light on for you

    Eat the weak, and devour the sane
    From our bones, are new monsters made
    Smash the buildings, eat the places, destroy all day

    Do you feast on nostalgia?
    Take pleasure from pain
    Look out 'cause the children
    Will learn your real name

    Gonna leave the light on for you
    Gonna leave the light on for you
    Gonna leave the light on for you

    Eat the weak, and devour the sane
    From our bones, are new monsters made
    Smash the buildings, eat the places, destroy all day

    Eat the weak, and devour the sane
    From our bones, are new monsters made
    Nothing left but ruins at the end of our day

    Eat the weak, and devour the sane
    From our bones, are new monsters made
    Smash the buildings, eat the places, destroy all day

    Eat the weak, and devour the sane
    From our bones, are new monsters made
    Nothing left but ruins at the end of our day Writer/s: Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, Janet Weiss
