The moon was a glow, it was the only light
It wouldn't show enough that could feed our eyes
And so they would grow into a dangerous size
I was watching you crawl out of the forest

I couldn't know, I didn't ask you and you wouldn't tell
The last of the low light fell

You're carrying fire out of the forest
All the animals hide but one that was hunting you
As only a child
Fearing the hands of the one you could trust
Tracing the scars on the one you could love
There you were carving it over your heart

We're moving like animals in the dark

"It's only a shadow that's over my skin
Free of the family that covered the sin
This is the last time that I let him win
This is the last time that I let him win
This is the last time that I let him win."

We're moving like animals in the dark
