  DON'T LEAVE YOUR MARK ON ME

Under Your Protective Wings
I walked into the night
And a thousand angry demons
Up and took a flight

And I went running through the fields
With a fever in my veins
And the rain came crashing down
And tried to clear my name

Above my head, all in red
I could see you, bearing down on me

I said, "you're not running out, no you're leaving now
I will find you, there ain't no way out
I'll keep tracking you down in the still of the night
Mine forever, mine forever..."

Don't leave your mark on me, I need to reply
I'm not staying and I'm not just killing time
Don't leave your mark on me, I have to reply
I'm not staying, I'm not staying no

Mistress of darkness
Accomplice of the night
A shadow in the doorway
Beckons me inside

And something let the way
Though I couldn't see his face
And a voice from deep inside me
Seemed to get out of this place

In my head, all was said
As the jailor turned the key on me

He said, "you're not running out
No you're not leaving now
He said there's no way
There's no way out"

Don't leave your mark on me, I need to reply
I'm not staying and I'm not just killing time
Don't leave your mark on me, I have to reply
I'm not staying, I'm not staying no

This nightmare never ends
Memories of absent friends
Masked illusions stare at me
Point the finger silently
Stand accused as the jury stares
There's a ghost in here somewhere
There's a ghost in here somewhere

Don't leave your mark on me
No need to reply
I'm not staying
I'm just killing time

Don't leave your mark on me
I have to reply
I'm not staying no
I'm not staying no
I'm not staying no

(this nightmare never ends)
(memories of absent friends)
(this nightmare never ends)
(there's a ghost in here somewhere)

(this nightmare never ends)
(memories of absent friends)
(this nightmare never ends)
(there's a ghost in here somewhere)
