Music by Dan Kramer. Lyrics by Dan Kramer & Ernest D'Amaso © 2016 Ominous Music, Funnystyle Music

lyrics

once or twice upon a time, you and i were free
and to the world, we were a beacon
all the heights we sought to climb, the sights we thought we'd see
this ain't the future we were seeking

i ain't blind
i can see what's happening

ever since i was a child, the sun's been on the rise
and every day was getting brighter
but now that light has been defiled, covered up with lies
and the cage is getting tighter

and we've been had
we've been sold a story
we should be mad
cause it's a lie


CHORUS
(here comes the darkness)
should the sun refuse to shine
(here comes the night)
you can run but you can't hide
ain't no way we can stop this
so we need to fight
til we see the light


i gave no power to the king, but blame resides with me
if i don't give him any trouble
it's a case of how we view the thing, as far as i can see
i ain't the one who's living in a bubble

you were had
you were sold a story
listen

ignorant and terrified means easy to persuade
divided right from the beginning
wicked hints of genocide - the reason you're afraid
but i ain't why your herd is thinning

see, ya'll are blind
you don't see what's happening
you toe the line
and just deny

CHORUS
(here comes the darkness)
should the sun refuse to shine
(here comes the night)
you can run but you can't hide
ain't no way we can stop this
so we need to fight
til we see the light
here comes the darkness, people
(here comes the darkness)
here comes the night
(here comes the night)
ain't no way we can stop the evil
(ain't no way we can stop this)
so we need to fight
til we see the light
