"Keep It Dark" as written by and Michael/collins Rutherford....
Found that man reported missing,
He wandered in his home.
It don't seem to bad if you consider
Just what he's been through.

Seems he met up with a gang of thieves,
Who mistook him for a man of means,
They locked him up then found he had no money,
So they let him go again.
Now he's back at home and happy
Just to see the kids.

I wish that I could really tell you
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen.
A world full of people their hearts full of joy,
Cities of light with no fear of war,
And thousands of creatures with happier lives,
And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to hide.

Oh, keep it dark.

It seems strange to have to lie,
About a world so bright.
And tell instead a made-up story,
From the world of night.

I wish, that I could really tell you,
All the things that happened to me
And all that I have seen,
A world full of people their hearts full of joy,
Cities of light with no fear of war,
And thousands of creatures with happier lives,
And dreams of a future with meaning and no need to lie,
No need to hate,
No need to hide.

Oh, keep it dark.

    Song MeaningThis song opened my inner eye. Once "it" happens to a person, the purpose of life becomes clear to you. Things in life happen for reasons. Search the internet for "inner eye" and read about it. There are more songs than you can imagine that discuss this most wonderful of gifts from God. The reason many people don't understand the words, is because you have not been able to open your inner eye as of yet. The analogy is; that it is like listening to somebody speak a forien language. You can't understand the language until you learn it. Once it happens, EVERYTHING becomes crystal clear. Honest
