We climb slowly out from under the rock, we were hiding
To greet the sun as it leaves the sky, on the cycle it was riding
And we stand new beneath the blanket of stars, so vast it sways our stance
And swaying we continue to rise until it becomes one outright dance
And the moon keeps watch as the howling grows into one single petal from a very different rose
And when we all get lost in the throbbing throng's exhaustion
We actually touch those flickering lights and give them something back
We are in fact the children of the night

A spark of smoke in the air commands the revelries as I attend
It says, "Be not afraid beneath the heavens for the evening is your friend"
And the moon keeps watch as the howling grows into one single petal from a very different rose
And when we all get lost in the throbbing throng's exhaustion
We actually touch those flickering lights and give them something back
We are in fact the children of the night
