And Why Did Evil Enter The World Wearing My Face?

So innocence is just a lie
Born, broken, we die
And why
Did evil enter this world
Wearing my face?

Chaos, wind, love, all forming
But not formed
Blood star, leaking children
Eating sunlight, vomiting night
For pities sake turn on the light

For pities sake turn on the light
