From the recording The Haunting of Mary Shelley


I am leaving this world behind Do not search for me in Heaven I will follow The man whose heart I bear He was atypical In his custom and belief Yet I am bound to him Through what lies beyond What lies beyond What lies you tell Are lies invisible If we know ourselves A somewhat sweet and sickly smell Of burned and burning flesh The pyre blazed so very bright On the beach that night Grimly, they all stood around But for one who waited With a heart of stone in the carriage They would slander and decry That which they don’t understand Ignorance will lead to fear Especially if it runs unchecked The only way to fight the dark Is by lighting up the truth Never once to back away From what lies beyond What lies beyond What lies you tell Your lies can’t hurt me now That I know myself
