Just heard this for the first time and pretty much fell out of my chair. Heartbreaking, could be triggering.
I'm bolding the line that especially got to me.
There is darkness and death in your eyes What have you got buried inside? The shallow grave in your soul The ghosts that have taken control
You really should have dug a little deeper there Body parts are starting to appear and scare the child inside away
Each tear that flows down your face Trickles then picks up the pace And turns to a river inside A river that will not subside
I can hear that dreadful overflowing sound And watching from afar I see a child is drowned The child inside your heart
I can see you drifting away Heading for the light I can see you drifting away Every night
Why were you always inside? On days when the weather was fine And while we were running around You were nowhere to be found
You know you should have taken all your dolls to bed Well you were made to play games with your soul instead The child inside you died
"it's good to be young but let's not kid ourselves -- it's better to pass on through those years and come out the other side with our hearts still beating; having stared down demons and come back breathing." -- John Darnielle
