"Driving Down The Darkness" as written by and Bradley James/kendrick Fafara....
Beat down through worlds
This time it's crossed the line
Beware of what's behind
Wolfs coming quick to kill you

Currents running strong
Think your right, wrong
Look, it's long gone
Look, it's long gone

Stick it to yourself
Hold your own
Stay strong in the sight of insanity

Driving down the darkness
Stricken by the madness
Praying for forgiveness
While you play god (with my life)

Me against them, no stopping
Time for action not talking
If it rears it's ugly head I'll cut it clean off
Change this, change that
Change this, change that
My ears are burning from all the talking
Time for fuckers to start walking

Stick to yourself
Hold your own
Stay strong in the sight of insanity

Driving down the darkness
Stricken by the madness
Praying for forgiveness
While you play god (with my life)

I'll pray for you
Your prayers come true
That I don't come for you

Driving down the darkness
Stricken by the madness
Praying for forgiveness
While you play god (with my life)

    General CommentI think its about going against someone who is trying to control you, an fighting them to get control of your own life back, and "drive down the darkness" you are in because you arnt in control of yourself

    General CommentA great thing about music is anyone can pull any meaning they want out of it. For this particular song, this is what I take out of it: I'm going through a divorce right now. What I hear in the music is the battle within ones self to control the crazy irrational thoughts you have when dealing with something like divorce. "Stay strong in the sight of insanity" If you've ever been through a divorce, you know how crazy you seem at times. The title itself "Driving down the Darkness" is simply saying, you have to keep those dark thoughts and impulses in check. And if your spouse is vindictive evil bitch, it may seem like she's is playing god with your life.

    General CommentI just view the meaning of the song as: I can't tely on anyone or trust anyone, you can only truly rely on yourself. The whole "pray I don't come for you" part (to me) is about people who have done you wrong in the past.
