Dark Matter

Night Terror

It'll be the hottest day of the year if the sun still deigns to rise

The shadows that appear will create a dark disguise

A turbulent creeping fear the moon will mix in with the tides

Ancient monsters reappear with your name cut in their hides

The shadows that appear will create a dark disguise

For year after year this old man's life acquired lies

Ancient monsters reappear with your name cut in their hides

As more and more and more of us die from pure surprise

For year after year this old man's life acquired lies

Cardiac infractions and cancers multiply

As more and more and more of us die from pure surprise

Nothing screams louder than the terror in the night

Cardiac infractions and cancers multiply

A turbulent creeping fear the moon will mix in with the tides

Nothing screams louder than the terror in the night

It'll be the hottest day of the year if the sun still deigns to rise

If the sun still deigns to rise

In the twilight of your life

If you see with clear eyes

In the fullness of your time

If the sun still deigns to rise

And you think you have survived

In the fullness of your time

You'll give in to all life's lies
