about

But it's not the thrill of discovery that moves the scientist; it's the tale of light and love that touches her heart and works its alchemy inside her. She finds herself thinking of the star-gazer with a quiet euphoria, her defences falling away as she opens her heart to the possibilities of love. Ever the scientist however she tries to view her findings objectively. The Butcher was open to love once and the darkness crept inside him to make him the monster he is today. If you open up to love, you open up to pain. The scientist sits at the foot of the lighthouse and wonders if the change in her will bring darkness or light.

lyrics

I came here looking for answers
tripping over dusty old bones
suddenly those dusty old bones are up and dancing
sang a little song, a little song for me
about the light that shines too bright to see
the light that shines too bright to be ignored

showing me the light behind those
shadows on the wall we call our history
showing me the best of you
so maybe I can learn to see the best of me

see my armour see it falling away
see this whole heart revealed

It crashed into my heart like it was fired from a cannon
woke me up so hard I never wanted to sleep again
never wanted to sleep again with anyone but you
sleep and wake again in the shape again of me and you

waiting for the world to wake up
wonder if they'll notice that it's beautiful
waiting for the world to break up
wonder if they'll notice that it's wonderful

see my armour see it falling away
see this whole heart reveals

what if after all these are just shadows on the wall
and the things you can't believe at all are true?
