"Dominion Day" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
In my darkness
I hear Jesus crying
In my darkness
I see children savage and blind
In my darkness
I see dead men kneel before the cross
In my darkness
I hear the voice of evil

Disciples, dark angels
This is dominion day
'My demons, come to me
This is dominion day'

In his darkness
I can feel the storm come
In his darkness
Holy water burns my soul
In his darkness
A grave waits for you at heaven's gate
In his darkness
I hear screams that hide the voice of God

'Come children of Eden
Pray to me on dominion day'
'Pray for your salvation
Sanctuary on dominion day'
My soul save me

In his mercy
He will bring the disease
In his mercy
He will burn the oceans
In his mercy
He will tear the sky down
In his mercy
He will make pain eternal

'Your nightmare is breathing
This is dominion day'
Welcome to your saviour
This is dominion day
'This is my new kingdom
This is dominion day'
'Creation bleeds for me
This is dominion day'

    General CommentThis entire album (Exile) screams of Gary Numans' loss of religious faith and belief.
    This song, like most of the rest, is excellently executed (musically), haunting in its' lyrics, emotionally evocative and thought-provoking.

    "Oh your city lies in dust, my friend"...sounds like Numan was listening to Siouxsie and The Banshees when he wrote this number.
