"Darkness" as written by Philip Adrian Wright and Jo Callis....
Where my dreams are all too clear
Darkness, darkness
Filled with all the sounds of fear
I hear voices (don't turn out the light)
Calling faraway
I see shadows (don't turn out the light)
Moving, changing shape
And the clock stops
As darkness closes in
I hesitate but it's too late
I scream and scream again
I hear colours black and red
I see sounds that fill my head
I'll never read those books again
In darkness
Where my dreams are all too clear
Darkness, darkness
Filled with all the sounds of fear
I hear voices (don't turn out the light)
Calling faraway
I see shadows (don't turn out the light)
Moving, changing shape
Don't turn out the light (don't turn out the light)
Or I'll go over the edge
Don't turn out the light (don't turn out the light)
Or I'll go over the edge
In darkness
Where my dreams are all too clear
Darkness, darkness
Filled with all the sounds of fear
I hear voices (don't turn out the light)
Calling faraway
I see shadows (don't turn out the light)
Moving, changing shape
I hear voices (don't turn out the light)
Calling faraway
I see shadows (don't turn out the light)
Moving, changing shape

    My InterpretationGreat song. Lyrics are very obvious but why not post anyway. He read a book then got freaked out by the book. He is in the dark somewhere in a house. His mind is playing tricks on him, he looks at the shadowsn & hear voices then screams.

    General CommentI first heard the masterpiece which is "Dare" around the same time as i first saw the film "The Omen".

    So this gives me the heeby jeebys a bit. Love it to bits though. As someone else said, it's about fear/dislike of percieved "things" and the increased anxiety that darkness can present.
