about

Everyone has their beasties... Those memories you'd rather lock away, those parts of yourself you keep hidden, those regrets, those doubts. Thanks to Aden for inspiring the title. - Janis Malicious

lyrics

The boy and his beast go walking
Looking for trouble and they find it
Where they expected least
Back at the home they left in peace
The concrete streets now turned to rubble
Where they once sank their teeth in
The house they one called home now bare and cold and filled with ghosts

Lock and leave, throw away the keys
Lock and leave, throw away the keys
Lock and leave me discarded

The boy and his beast go hunting
Ready to meet the kiss of sun-down, prey like me
The boy and his beast shed no tears as they release me
It's too late for them to change what they have become

Lock and leave, throw away the keys
Lock and leave, throw away the keys
Lock and leave me scarred

The boy and his beast go searching for salvation
He wraps his cloak about his knees to escape the bitter winter
The brittle bones once-chased quarry wasting to grey
Now the ivory temple where they kneel and pray for dreamless sleep

Lock and leave, throw away the keys
Lock and leave, throw away the keys
Lock and leave him buried
