about

My girlfriend is very special to me and served as inspiration for this track. I find the dark and night time very peaceful and creatively stimulating, just as I find her to be for me as well.

lyrics

The stars
How they shine
Show heaven exists
Even at night

So make the sun
Fade away
Invoke the night
Replace the day

All of the things
That makes us weep
Tear us down, make us weak
Take it away from
Our eyes
Our vision
So we can’t see

All of the hurt
That evil brings
Coldness
The suffering
Take it away from
This earth
From the souls
Of mortal beings

(Make the sun
Fade away
Invoke the night
Replace the day)

When I am home
I am set free
Because you
Are here with me

From day to day
I’m incomplete
I find myself in misery
My mind is cluttered with debris
Buried in anxiety

The lines are blurred
Can hardly see
Claustrophobic
I can’t breathe
Time is slowly passing me
I’m drifting from reality

But there’s light ahead
How ironic
My redeemer is the setting of the sun

Shadows grow
Landscape becomes unending
Shapes morph into each other as my eyes open up

Details fade
From the objects on this planet
A veil of sepia befalls our color spectrum

Photons bounce
Softly from our structures
Graced with luminescence from Celestial spheres

At this time
Most retire to their dwellings
Feeling exposed to creatures of the dark

There is nothing
For me to be afraid of
Darkness is my element
Contentment, my home

The onset of the gloaming,
Always accompanied by this spectral comfort
Symbiosis of shadows and solace alluring
Intrinsic desire for darkness elucidated by
Exuberance received and significance discerned

She is the mirror
That reflects these sensations yet amplified
She is my darkness
A prestigious bestowal to legitimize my being

There is nothing
For me to be afraid of
Darkness is my element
Contentment, my home

Source of vitality
The reason I’m elated
Providing energy and motivation
It’s time to get to work

She is the mirror
That reflects these sensations yet amplified
I’ve found my darkness
Unrivaled gift bestowed to me to legitimize existence
