"The Dark Don't Hide It" as written by and Jason Molina....
Something held me down and made me make a promise
That I wouldn't tell when the truth forgets about us
But saying it now comes easily
After finding out how you've been using me

[Repeat: x4]
At least the dark don't hide it

You said you only wanted friends for long enough
To get rid of them
You found the kind you knew would only kill you
So you surrounded yourself with them

[Repeat: x4]
At least the dark don't hide it

The world was empty on the day when they made it
But heaven needed someplace to throw all the shit
Human hearts and pain should never be separate
They wouldn't tear themselves apart both trying to fit

[Repeat: x4]
At least the dark don't hide it

Now death is going to hold us up in the mirror
And say we're so much alike we must be brothers
See I've had a job to do but people like you
Have been doing it for me to one another

[Repeat: x4]
At least I don't hide it

    General CommentThe first verse sets the song up, but the last three are what really kill me about this song. Especially "I had a job to do but people like you have been doing it for me to one another--at least I don't hide it."
