"Darkness Darkness" as written by and Jesse Colin Young....
Darkness darkness, be my pillow
Take my head and let me sleep
In the coolness of your shadow
In the silence of your dream

Darkness darkness, hide my yearning
For the things that cannot be
Keep my mind from constant turning
Towards the things I cannot see now
Towards the things I cannot see now
The things I cannot see now

Darkness darkness, long and lonesome
Is the day brings me here
I have found the edge of sadness
I have known the depths of fear

Darkness darkness, be my blanket
Cover my with the endless night
Take away away the pain of knowing
Fill the emptiness of right now
The emptiness of right now
Fill the emptiness of right now

Darkness darkness, be my pillow
Take my head and let me sleep
In the coolness of my shadow
In the silence of my dream

Darkness darkness, be my blanket
Cover my with the endless night
Take away away the pain of knowing
Fill the emptiness of right now
In the emptiness of right now
In the emptiness of right now

    General CommentThe guitar work is classic. "Darkness, Darkness" seems 180 degrees from the Youngblood's other laid-back stuff.
    I've read that a new vocal rendition by Lisa Torban (who?) stands out on the soundtrack of "Ghosts of the Abyss" IMAX documentary.

    General CommentThis song give me the chills

    Lots of artists have covered this song, but none approach the powerful existential despair that comes through in the original as sung by Jesse Colin Young
