Thrive in the Dark

you know he'll work best in the dark room
ran on the scent of rotten angels he kept 
let him loose in the living room
and hes wrapped around the furniture
look him in the windowless eye
sunk down to his elbows
he got me on my lucky thirteens

burnt out easy
a good mix of glow and gloom
that which strives when most deprived
who thrives in the darkest part of a room

used to lie in the backyard
be glowing for days
a come down like sunset
be spewin light and it would
wrap around the buildings
and the houses looked human
with monsters within

night didnt need a camouflage
you could see right through
that which cries when most alive
who thrives in the darkest time of night
