Lyrics to song Penance by Device

Verse 1:
In the perfect dark, a botticellian angel exists
The elusive partner puts her key in my hand
A fairly simple gesture, shrouded in evil
As she distorts, it becomes easy to understand
Lost in her piercing eyes
As everything around me, dies

Chorus:
Well, can you make the nightmares go away?
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this endless night

Verse 2:
In the choking dark, I try to move, I'm unable
A hundred thousand moving creatures, tickle my flesh
I feel the heat, it's getting harder to breathe...
I feel the panic taking hold, for I'm beginning to understand.
The only way I'll be saved
Is if someone breaks into my grave

Chorus:
Well, can you make the nightmares go away?
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this endless night

Bridge:
Don't need it, don't want it
No more sedation, no more sedation
Don't need it, don't want it
Eradicate this endless aching
Don't need it, don't want it
No more sedation, no more sedation
Don't need it, don't want it
Eradicate this endless aching inside

Chorus:
Well, can you make the nightmares go away?
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
And save me from this endless night

Outro:
Well, can you make the nightmares go away?
Can you pull the demon from inside?
Will penance make the nightmares go away?
Can you save me from this dreadful night?
