I've written songs in the dark
I've felt inspired in the dark
I hide myself in the dark
Used to be afraid of the dark
Those in the light know we die in the dark

There's only artificial light
My flaws hide well here
I used to be afraid of cluttered noises
Now I'm afraid of silence

Fill this space Idle words
I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
Raise me up to live again
Like you did, like you did.

Now I am mute despite myself
All of them are gone
The silence overtakes me
The idle words forsake me and I am left to face me
I'm held accountable
For every idle word
Curse the idle words

I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
Raise me up to live again
Like you did, like you did.

Glory shows up
Exposes us
I'm naked here
Forsaken here, by the dark, by the dark

I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me in side this
Raise me up to live again
Like you did
Like you did.

    That she is afraid to go out in the light where everyone can see her flaws and judge, and in the dark no one can see her flaws and judge her.

    Sometimes we're alone - we suffer even as babies, then as we grow up, we learn to be cold and turn true love out. But as jesus turns us around, miracles begin and we want suddenly to be free from the dark - then he heals us and we become new people. That's what it means.

    this song is my favorite.i think this is one of the best songs i've ever heard.this is what real christian go through,we die for him and then live again to live for him.real christians are dead to the whims of the world,we live no more on what we want but for His.

    I think this song means that Lacey-or anyone in general-, have been through many dark times in their lives and have done things in this dark period, and the dark exposes us to it all. I also thinks it means everyone has to deal with it all, even though it might scare us and might ask someone-in Lacey's view, God or Jesus- for help.
