"A Darkened Room" as written by and David Sabo Rachel Southworth....
In a darkened room
Beyond the reach of God's faith
Lies the wounded, the shattered remains of love betrayed
And the innocence of a child is bought and sold
In the name of the damned
The rage of the angels left silent and cold

Forgive me please for I know not what I do
How can I keep inside the hurt I know is true

Well tell me when a kiss of love becomes a lie
That bears the scar of sin too deep
To hide behind this fear of running unto you
Please let there be light
In a darkened room

All the precious times have been put to rest again
And the smile of the dawn
Brings tainted lust singing my requiem
Can I face the day when I'm tortured in my trust
And watch it crystallize
While my salvation it crumbles to dust

Why can't I steer the ship before it hits the storm
I've fallen to the sea but still I swim for shore

Tell me when a kiss of love becomes a lie
That bears the scar of sin too deep
To hide behind this fear of running unto you
Please let there be light
In a darkened room

    General CommentNo... It's not about cheating, it's about child abuse. :/

    General Commentwow, after finding out that the song is about child abuse, the song suddenly became a lot more sad and meaningful.

    General CommentWow, I never figured it was about child abuse. It really hits me with a lot more meaning now.

    General CommentIts absolutely about abuse, and the worst type. Just look at the words:
    "the innocence of a child is bought and sold"
    "Tell me when a kiss of love becomes a lie That bears the scar of sin too deep
    To hide behind"
    "All the precious times have been put to rest again And the smile of the dawn Brings tainted lust singing my requiem"

    Sorry, but this has nothing to do with a cheating relationship.. everything about these words scream of the unforgivable crime of molestation. And kudos to the band for putting something unspeakable into words that forces us all to see reality

    General CommentI cant believe no one has commented on this song yet its such a good song perfectly what happens to some one who cheats and is forced to watch everyone and everything fall away as punishment for what they've done People if youre dating some one who has cheated on you listen to this and think about what they might be going through cause alot of times all it is is that they love you more than anything but they became weak and gave in to temptation not meaning to hurt you and they lie about it hoping to bury it in the past so you dont get hurt
    but you still do and are hurt even more
