I’ll sit in darkness
The room lit by the flashing light of the phone
Don’t want to play the voicemail
Don’t want to hear your dialling tone
And the cars drive by outside
The whistle of air as they speed past
The spotlights of the headlights
Interrogate the pavements as they pass.
It’s midnight now and the streetlights go off
It can always get darker
The bottomless hole ever more bottomless
The dark light of night ever starker
I won’t find the answers tonight
Certainly not here
But if I can’t see anything, doesn’t that include myself?
Aren’t I wishing for me to disappear?
My enemy is the break of day
For the last one left me broken
I guess it gave me fair warning
But I still feel cheated by the same token
I need to summon the strength
Well it is the witching hour
In the dark, stark light of night
I will try and regain my power
