lyrics

Every day, people say, "I am such a freak,"
Leaving scars, till they are, disenfranchised and weak.
But I see, underneath, through the skin and bone,
We are no more unknown, than we are on our own.

Bound together, all of us are just the same.
Though they call us diff'rent names…

We are gothic,
We are one,
Stolen darkness
From the sun!
We're the children
Of the night,
Casting shadows in the pale moonlight!

Wearing black, front to back, are we vanishing,
Or are we, breaking free, like a bat and its wings?
Do we hide, terrified, shaking in our shells,
Or reveal ourselves, and raise a little hell?

We're the creatures we were always meant to be.
Raise your voice and sing with me…

Growing from our whispers, screams
Are calling sisters, brothers,
Bring to life a world of dreams
In which nobody's "other."
