The inner feeling
The inner feeling
In which they are hidden
There's no power of healing
The things that are forbidden

A little, tiny, very small
Peeking through the wall
Short, not very tall
The most whimsical of us all

Power we cannot see
The ghastly things are up for a walk
The prisoners are we
Suddenly we're not able to talk

A dried fiend,
A false end,
At least it can make us understand

All the faces we won't see
All the places in which we cannot be
For all, we can't make ourselves free

Called by the name of a queer goth
I'm still the same
Quite whimsical
Still that curious thing
Still the same
Called by the name
Of a queer goth

Clearly the one
Quite disappointing
That whimsical thought
Distinctly dark and somber
Still the same
The one to blame
Wherefore I'm called by the name
Of a queer goth

It's me, you'd see, even before
Peeking through the door,
It's me you are looking for
I know who I am;
I'm aware of it all

Quite hopeless
Still not very amusing
Still the same
Called by the name
Of a queer goth
