Annotationen

Der Song ist wie ein Gebet an die Dunkelheit, die sich 1969 als Desillusionierung aller Träume einer Dekade in den Kreisen der Gegenkultur breit machte. «Darkness, Darkness» ist das düstere Gegenstück, die Kehrseite zur Hippie-Hymne Get Together.

Lyrics

Darkness, Darkness Be my pillow Take my hand And let me sleep In the coolness of your shadow In the silence of your deep Darkness, Darkness Hide my yearning For the things I cannot be Keep my mind from constant turning Toward the things I cannot see now Things I cannot see now Things I cannot see Darkness, darkness Long and lonesome Ease the day that brings me pain I have felt the edge of sadness I have known the depth of fear Darkness, darkness, be my blanket Cover me with the endless night Take away, take away the pain of knowing Fill the emptiness of right now Emptiness of right now, now, now Emptiness of ri-ight now Darkness, darkness, be my pillow Take my hand, and let me sleep In the coolness of your shadow In the silence, the silence of your deep Darkness, darkness, be my blanket Cover me with the endless night Take away, take away the pain of knowing Fill the emptiness of right now Emptiness of right now now now Emptiness of right.... Oh yeah Oh yeah Emptiness, emptiness Oh yeah
