lyrics

The dark upon the day becomes the dark of night
Where every form recedes from sight you find your faith by firelight
Where everything is hidden but no longer hides
I found out that everything is justified

And who can reckon all the things a man can want
A hundred phantom hungers whispering wishes to the heart they haunt
A silhouette reflected in the car outside
I found out that everything is justified

And it's down, down, down the dark, our dame devours the remnant spark
Of sun and sons, and everyone who casts his shadow wears her mark
Way-hey up she rise, and who can face her famished eyes
The blackness there and everything it justifies

I walked awhile, I saw a place with neon lights
A place where people keep their faces bright, like amulets against the night
I noticed then that they're the ones who were terrified

I walked behind the building, where the cars were parked
I crouched between two pickup trucks and noticed, in the waiting dark
My silhouette reflected in the driver's side
And I found out that everything is justified

And it's down, down, down the dark, our dame devours the remnant spark
Of sun and sons, and everyone who casts his shadow wears her mark
Way-hey up she rise, and who can face her famished eyes
The blackness there and everything it justifies
