★ lyrics ★
Go away moonbeams, and shine somebody else awake
I'm trying to sleep here, my new bones already ache
I've tried pills and magic spells, to make sure that I don't break
But I can't sleep at all

Stop shining through my window with your incessant gleaming
New books must be shelved more than new wings need preening
I've tried all I can just to keep myself dreaming
But fate runs deep, just deep enough to fall

Will I ever find my destiny?
Will I find a place where I can be?

Somber, I am somber
There's a darkness that's on the rise
Somber, I am somber
And it builds when I close my eyes

I can't fight this feeling
It's strange but appealing
It taunts me and haunts me inside

I know that it's bad
I could have told you all that
But somehow I think it's alright

Waited, I have waited
I've been waiting for life to start
But I just can't shake the bones I had to break
And the world that I've torn apart

And I wanna tell you
about the doubts
that put me out
of commission for a while

And I wanna sell you
on this fantasy of a place
that's been tugging at my nape,
but it's vile

(And it's really not worth mentioning at all)

What's this darkness?
That I feel in my warmest dreams
Is it a gold crown? No, it’s a harness
But it sparkles on every seam!

Somber, I am somber
There's a darkness that's on the rise
Somber, I am somber
And it builds when I close my eyes

I can't find a purpose
But I know I belong somewhere
And they tell me I'm the greatest
But the coverage just isn't there

I can't fight this feeling
It's strange but appealing
It taunts me and haunts me inside

I know that it's bad
I could have told you all that
But somehow I think it's alright

But they're asking for stuff that I cannot do
(and it's really not worth mentioning at all!)
And they're telling me things that may not be true
(Is all of it true?)
Oh I wish I knew what’s wrong with me

Somber, I am somber
There's a darkness that's on the rise
Somber, I am somber
And it builds when I close my eyes

And I'm waiting for the time, and I'm waiting for the day
When my purpose will be clear, and these doubts will go away
Oh my princesses don't fear — if you could only hear the screaming deep inside
It would collar you too, alone in the dark we could hide

Will I ever find my destiny?
Will I find a place where I can be?
Is happiness in certainty?
Is freedom out to slaughter me?

Somber, I am somber
There's a darkness that's on the rise
Somber, I am somber
And it builds when I close my eyes
