"Dark Side of Night" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
Bleeding me
Though my heart is dry
The knife is a symbol
The dark side of night

Killer's on the run
With a halo of lies
Raising the hell within us
As the angels fly

[Chorus]
There's a rain tonight
Falling from the sky
There's a liar's moon tonight,
The dark side of night

The secret chasm
Hole in my heart
Fire's raging on us
Burning like a scar

Made of flesh and blood
My soul's made of stone
My flame is burning out now
Darkness nightmares alone

[Chorus]

    General CommentThe best song on this album. Reminds me of "Broken Dreams" & "When Sept. Ends." Def! My taste!

    General CommentThis song is amazing!!! People are not giving enough credit to this band just cause "it's not Green Day".
    Except that it totally is Green Day.

    This song definitely reminds me of something, but I cant figure out what...

    General CommentThis DOES remind me of The Doors, MissNeurotic!
    And it kinda reminds me a little of the Moody Blues, too.

    General CommentThis song is probably the darkest song on the album, but it's so good.
    I wonder if FHT is going to tour at all?
    Or at least they need to get Green Day touring again, and maybe incorporate some of these songs on the tour...
