Song 1 - Poem by AimeeLeigh Olsen

We came to this disrepute
Unchallenged, your ego soared
While I cowered in your painful light
All the time I wanted to run
Scream into the night
I quietly wasted away
And you and yours enjoyed
The fruits of my pain

But it's alright, I'll be okay
I've found my sanctuary

Run, scream into the night
Scream, run into the night

I tear off your mask of pleasure
Pull out my hair and dissipate
Into the vacuum you created for me
In the dark filled with unwelcome memories
I held your name
Until it was time for me to...

Run, scream into the night
Scream, run into the night

All that time waiting for blame
All that time I held your name
Until it was time to let it out
Out into the light.
