Some people change because of pain, for better or worse,

We all possess a light side within us

and dance in it in the best of times

while the dark side beckons

and we waltz to that beat

It just depends which one you decide to pirouette to

Dance macabre your soul

Embrace the grotesqueries

And let your shadow sway

at your masquerade

There is no fear

for the scariest moment

is just before you begin
