They taught me to fear the dark
They forgot what happens in the light.
The dark is the monster realm
Full of the unknown and mysterious
I know why people sleep
Thy they close their eyes
Pretend nothing exists as soon as darkness descends
That’s why we dream, you know
To distract us from the horrors that may be

In the light
Everything is blindingly bright
And horrifying familiar
This is the realm of the humans
A different monster resides here
That monster is us
We kill each other each day
Ignore the helpless
Worship the selfish
Here we destroy and poison everything that dare defies us
We are used to this.
