about

The longest track on 2010's self-indulgent masterpiece "Failure playing Art in the dress rehearsal for The Apocalypse", this track hails the virtues of Darkness, a place my mind often wanders into and thus draw my creativity from, yet the track also insists:

"There is more to life than Black and White.
There are Colours.
I see Purple, Green and Orange.
It's a start."

lyrics

Lyrics:

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
Cross no-one.

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:
Darkness.

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.

I see Purple, Green and Orange.
It's a start.

...

Darkness
Darkness (It feels good)
Darkness (It feels right)

...

Gabriel, Gabriel
Gabriel, take me back
To a time before White and Black.

Gabriel, let the colours fortify my mind.
Oh, Gabriel, let the colours fortify my mind.
My mind. My mind.

Gabriel, Gabriel, Gabriel.

I am so tired. So tired.
Gabriel, take me back.
