The longest track on the album, this many-part progressive song tells of the glories of Darkness, yet insists Darkness only reigns in a bi-polar system, and that “There is more to Life than Black and White. There are Colours.”
By the end of this track a discourse has begun with the Angel Gabriel, begging him to “Take me [Angus] back, to a time before White and Black.”
In contrast to the discourse with Mikael, this song shows a yearning for something more complex than White and Black, as the Artist finds himself opening up to the Colours “Purple, Green and Orange”, a way of looking at the world in triplets rather than as a bi-polar system.
Those who hold a bi-polar view of the universe:
Choose Dark over Light.
It's the obvious choice. Darkness is comforting.
It is tranquil. It is The Womb.
Whilst Light is harsh and relentless,
Aggressive and stark,
Those who follow the path of Darkness
They lurk quietly in the shadows, and deal
Only with what comes their way.
Hidden and silent, they do not confront the world,
But sit back and watch the madness unfold
With a slightly amused turn of the mouth.
Those who follow the Light feel compelled
To force it down everyone's throat.
"The Dark are lost, and must be saved.
Ultraviolet aggression must purge all
Who do not follow the way."
Vehemently, they will stop at nothing
Until every last shadow is erased.
Yet this is impossible in a bi-polar system.
The presence of Light creates Darkness
In the corners where it is absent.
In a bi-polar system the choice is obvious:
It is easy, it is accessible, and it feels good.
It feels right.
Yet there is more to Life than Black and White.
There are Colours.
