Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I live in the flat next door
And I can hear you fuck your girlfriend through the wall
But the only thing we share
Is the slightest nod as we're passing down the stairs
Verse 2
But behind the closing doors
The bees were buzzing
Inciting me to war
The plan [?] may be
But it's really not your fault you failed to see
Verse 3
We eat darkness
We eat darkness
Verse 4
I take out the trash at night
And on Thursday's I go shopping for supplies
I walk my son to school
And I seem to have the same problems as you
Verse 5
But what you will see
I was [?] someone I wanted you to believe
And all that you hold dear
Is under threat from someone all too near
Verse 6
We eat darkness
We eat darkness
Verse 7
Then you lost control
And your kids became confused
Among the powder kegs
With nothing left to lose
So now your chickens
Are coming home to roost
Verse 8
Do you think the bite is real?
Do you feel my teeth they're snapping at your heals?
Do tell me how to live
Then you feed me with your poison till I'm sick
Verse 9
Pretend that we're not here
If you look the other way we disappear
We want you to ignore
The people who eat darkness from next door
Verse 10
We eat darkness
We eat darkness
We eat darkness
We eat darkness
Verse 11
Then you lost control
And your kids became confused
Among the powder kegs
With nothing left to lose
So now your chickens
Are coming home to roost
