Little Strangeling

You look away in violent skies
With your sad and lovely eyes
You wonder how your life could be
Fraught with pain and misery

You are too young for this
You must not surrender
You are too young for this
You must never surrender

My little strangeling
So lovely, dancing in the night
My little strangeling
So beautiful, moving through black light
My little strangeling
There's so much that you have to learn
My little strangeling
Before the world lets you crash and burn

The night is coming to break your heart
Fractured fractals posing as art
It's not the way, the method's unsound
Like tears in rain to bring you down

But deep inside you have a will
Chaotic good, subversive still
Can you feel love? Do you have worth?
Experience the next rebirth

You are too young for this
You must not surrender
You are too young for this
You must never surrender

My little strangeling
So lovely, dancing in the night
My little strangeling
So beautiful, moving through black light
My little strangeling
There's so much that you have to learn
My little strangeling
Before the world lets you crash and burn

Don't crash and burn!
