Dark Lyrics - Gary Numan

Review The Song (1)

I've been waiting here
Waiting for faith
And the word to fall.
Now the darkness comes
And I'll pray for
The end of us all.

Don't let the dark into me
We killed the angels that warned us of you
Don't let the dark into me
We raised the tower of Babel for you
Don't let the dark into me
We let the children build temples for you
Don't let the dark into me
Don't let the vengeance of Heaven be you

So pray to me, I'm the Lord's new disease,
Look down into the face of God.
Bow down and cry, I'm the black Messiah,
The one true divinity.
Kneel before my altar and drink the wine of slaughter,
Who said I'd save anyone?
So bleed for me, I need hostility
To lead the faithful and the blind.

Don't let the light shine on me
I am the poison that feeds life to you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the demon that waits inside you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the ghost that reminds death of you
Don't let the light shine on me
I am the darkness that crawls into you

His Dark Matrerials? | Reviewer: Digideus | 8/25/2007

Quite when Gary became the God-hating new era industrialist he is now is unclear, although his personal traumas has been well documented on "Exile" and "Pure". This then, is possibly a highpoint of his catharsis, summed up in his darkest works. They sum up the feelings of cynicism and the disenchantment for religion of generation X, Y and Z. Surely, it is no small feat that his works in this period made perfect sense lyrically and provided a change of focus in his music toward darker realms.

This track was used in the movie "Dark City", which was a surreal and fantastic voyage into the realms of fantasy, yet at its core, as with this material, there are deep seated questions that demand answers. Where are those answers? Not where humanity has looked so far, obviously, and this songs achievements are a fine thing to sum up inside of four and a half minutes!
