I'm in Love with your Fear

 

 

Enter you now your silent searches,

Laying in wait, you quickly appear,

Holding me fast to all that approaches

Standing in echoes,

I'm in love with your fear

 

You've only come forth to test the waters,

Studied, I am,

My feet to the ground

Fix me now your dark cool gaze

Circle me round until you figure out how

 

You may stand in the middle

But the point is you stand,

Having never retreated

It draws closer at hand

Having never known victory

You can not turn away

Having never waged war,

It breaks like the light of day

 

For it's going to dawn one way or the next

Creep up behind you without your consent

Whisper sweet promises straight into your ear

Holding you prisoner,

I'm in love with your fear.
