"Dark Heart Dawning" as written by and Brian Transeau....
It's all good

Clever clap of lightning
Flash before the sound
The dark heart is dawning
There's no one else around

Violate me like an animal
Like you always do
While the dark heart is dawning
And the sky is as black as you

I came up in it
I crash down in it
It's all good
I feel complete in it
I black out in it
It's all good
It's all good

Burning branches of synaptic fire
Surf the serotonin swells
While the dark heart is dawning
And cuts the wound that nothing quells
Impotent in your hatred
I've been cut but never bled
Though your dark heart is dawning
This child can see a light ahead

Though I came up in it
I'm not defined by it
It's all good
I felt complete in it
Now cuttin free of it
It's all good

And in the age of love, you came and split my heart
And in the rage of love, you taught the joy in pain
And in the age of love, I found my sacred place
Where I can hide
From the dark heart that's dawning
Like now

From the dark heart that's dawning

And in the age of love, you came and split my heart
And in the rage of love, you taught the joy in pain
And in the age of love, I found my sacred place
Where I can hide
From the dark heart that's dawning
Like now

Dark Heart Dawning
Calm's still coming
Waves keep rising
Time keeps takin' her time
Time keeps takin' her time

    General Commentcould be interpreted as abuse... BT said that this song, and Solar Plexus, are about the same thing...

    General CommentYeah, it's definately about abuse. The verse:

    And in the age of love, you came and split my heart
    And in the rage of love, you taught the joy in pain
    And in the age of love, I found my sacred place
    Where I can hide from the dark heart that's dawning
    like now...

    is referring to his father, who abused him when he was younger.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about meditation, and being present with the darkness, the rage that comes up, without letting it consume you:

    Though I came up in it
    I'm not defined by it
    It's all good
    I felt complete in it
    now cutting free of it
    It's all good

    A lot of the songs on Emotional Technology contain very aware lyrics, like "What lies I learned /Lessened my ability to be present," and "Be still in your silence /Be silent and hopeful."

    General CommentI also figured it was about abuse.

    This is far and away the best song on the album in my opinion.
