lyrics

Welcome to the village where the children wear black
They went into the woods last night and never came back
Six long months waiting down in the dirt
Their mothers shedding tears until their eyes and lungs hurt

Tears fall slow, and I am still so hollow
Save yourself, the village will take your soul

Welcome to the village where the mothers wear red
Reflecting all the blood that the fathers have shed
Sharpening their knives and their axes with rocks
Dragging wriggling bags in droves right down to the docks

Tears fall slow, and I am still so hollow
Save yourself, the village will take your soul
I know I can't stay here for too long
Woe to those who wait until the dawn

Welcome to the village where I wait dressed in white
Beckoning you closer, just to fill you with fright
All fall down, but that's too simple, it seems
Complexities in rapture that haunt your darkest dreams

No one knows what happened after the fall
But I know the kids are dead after all
I know I can't stay here anymore
Come with me, the mothers lock the doors.
