Lyrics:

Follow me into the dark now
We can bring with us a spark
Try to coax it into flame
To warm the north and make it rain

I ran the track so many times my feet are planted in it
Haunted hallways haunted libraries hiding from the vindictive
But the devil was on my back and he told me I couldn't do it
And as I write another verse I'm thinking move Ben move
Because I want to show the validity of the points that I'm trying to prove
I'm not writing this for me, I'm writing this for you

Follow me into the dark now
We can bring with us a spark
Try to coax it into flame
To warm the north and make it rain

We dream that we are heroes jumping buildings saving lives
But we're trapped within a box because we believe their lies
And I think that if you jumped you would be surprised
Because I'm trading fact for fiction to justify my inflictions
Telling tall tales and fables filled with contradictions
But we are our own people with our own convictions

Follow me into the dark now
We can bring with us a spark
Try to coax it into flame
To warm the north and make it rain

You say you love my stories but they're just like your own
Reflected in my words of other people and how they've grown
But you're blinded by the cruelty that all of them have shown

But your beautiful beyond measure yes you yourself a treasure
Despite the fact that you find yourself to be somewhat the lesser
You are positively amazing so come with me on this adventure
Step into the dark and we will build a flame together

Follow me into the dark now
We can bring with us a spark
Try to coax it into flame
To warm the north and make it rain
