“Sometimes it is easier to see clearly into the liar than into the man who tells the truth. Truth, like light, blinds. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.”
– Albert Camus

“Mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.”
– The Tao

Everywhere You Hide
© 2013 McCall Erickson Lyrics
For BTG

I’m not gonna fly around for you anymore, darling
come down here
I’ve got a heart that’s hungry for the bones
for the blood, the sweat, the tears

Come lay with me
let’s draw the shades
too much light
just blinds me anyway

And I wanna know your darkness
I wanna know your lies
I wanna run my fingers all across your heart
until I find
everywhere you hide

I don’t care what you show the world
what you make them believe
all the stories you’ve ever told
that’s not enough for me

I wanna know the sound
your pretty mouth makes
when it’s all a little more
than you can take

Yeah, I wanna know your darkness
I wanna know your lies
I wanna run my fingers all across your heart
until I find
everywhere you hide

If we’re not placing bets
if we’re not passing time
if we’re not crossing fingers
if we’re not drawing lines
if the moon has fallen
and the sun ain’t shinin’
then who are ya?
who are ya?
who are ya then?

When everything is darkness
when it’s all turned to lies
when there’s no word
and there’s no sound
and there’s no where left to hide

Everywhere You Hide
