"Psalm" as written by and Timothy John Baker....
But often it happens you know
That the things you don't trust are the ones you need most
So it's cautiously into the dark
But you see before long that your eyes will adjust
And under the night you can hear
The full moon rise like a psalm in the air
And the air goes into your lungs
And around in your heart and on through your blood
It goes cautiously into the dark
And you see before long that we all have a part
And under your skin you can feel
That the fear that you feel is what will set you free

And under the night you can hear
The full moon rise like a psalm in the air
And the air goes into your lungs

    My InterpretationI'm not sure quite what it means. It might be about some kind of revelation/epiphany/self-realization during a peaceful night. Regardless it is a beautiful song.

    My InterpretationI may be way off, but I see a story of learning (being taught, perhaps by a therapist?) to live without an addiction (maybe a proper addiction like alcohol or drugs, or maybe avoidance using TV or food or video games). Slowly coming around to reality: the things you don't trust are your feelings (you're human, and as much as you wish away anxiety or sadness, you need the dark to see the light, and not having feelings is actually a pretty awful experience) so I think this is about learning to be mindful, to feel without judgement or avoidance, and pay attention to what the feelings are trying to tell you. Cautiously into the dark - experiencing your feelings cautiously at first but then you slowly start to realize that this is reality and things are deeper and more meaningful now (your eyes will adjust). I would not be surprised if the person who wrote this song has struggled with addiction - I'm not saying he has (I ain't a mind-reader) just that it would make sense to me.
