Man lives in a sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
But, there is unseen by most an underworld that is just as real, but not as brightly lit.
A Darkside.

[Chorus]
(DARKNESS)
I can write a verse and take the sun away.
(DARKNESS)
Say goodbye to light because it's gone today.
(DARKNESS)
Ain't no smilin', happiness has gone away.
(DARKNESS)
Watch me paint a pic that'll make you run away.

[Verse 1 - Tech N9ne]
I don't really give a fuck of what you think of me, i've had it up to here, yep.
Follow me into another dimension of insanity's right here, step.
I know you feel that i'm lovin' you when i'm kissin' and fuckin' you, in a minute imma veer left.
And by the pluck of the juggular, see the blood of my lover and then I finish when you're near death.
I'm sorry, but I mean it, cause when I got to chewin' out bitches I got bulimic.
Up in her like a gynocologist with a penis and when they bled on me I was giddy and never squeamish.
Bad as a demon I cannot get rid of, I really rely of the feeling of sex and the red of a woman.
Can I take a bite of your cerebellum I think it'd really get me up if I could be suckin' your serotonin.
I'd rather just die than inflict any pain on somebody who truly put trust in me.
Better yet, i'll just make 'em to suffer, who taught me and mocked me and fucked with me.
Maybe get up in the club and shoot it up and make 'em panic(!) at the disco.

(Backwards) Fuck you if devils are what you worship (Kcuf uoy fi slived era tahw uoy pishrow)

I can paint a dark picture.
You don't want me to start wit-cha.
Don't want me commin out with the hard hit-cha
Chew you up and if you really tart, spit-cha.
After the brain I put the lemon morang in.
Blood of a dame is what I drain my fangs in.
Takin the spirit and then the body it came in.
Away from the sun 'n forever you can remain in.


[Chorus x2]
(DARKNESS)
I can write a verse and take the sun away.
(DARKNESS)
Say goodbye to light because it's gone today.
(DARKNESS)
Ain't no smilin', happiness has gone away.
(DARKNESS)
Watch me paint a pic that'll make you run away.

[Verse 2 - Dirtball]
I'm all up on a pallet of pain ...-(?)-... up in it.
Imma break it down, the walls that try to stop me from poppin' my gun up in it.
Skitz onto me, honour me for the time, never give into the rhyme of another mind, lookin' like a nice guy.
Behind the face be the beast of another motherfucker who be heard the least.
So many hear me when I say that I remember everybody that led me astray yo fuck 'em.
Nobody but closest know about my darkness and when they fall away yo fuck 'em.
I'm so sick that I never checked out of my mental ward, working in Sweden.
Burning the bodies this song made my memory feed 'em, ghostin' me loud and i'm proud I can see 'em.
I don't even wanna talk about it but I do it for the demons and the devils alive.
Hopin' that the non-believers get a number two in the eyes, please try to die, save me the time.
Nobody better move when i'm comin' through, imma stay devoted to rhyme.
Next line, devoted to mine, hex signs, rude 'n wicked, imma be forever de-dine (??)
Picture this, my wrist slit, pissed off i'm hangin' by a meat hook.
Yo i'm bangin' on a meathook, it's the twist this chapter ya miss the darker the venom of a main hook book.
I'm tellin' everybody that i'm not doin' so well up in my noggin, so you better watch your step.
Sub-noise when i'm bangin' on the Tech set, best believe the dark times are here.
My lips eclipse everything.


[Chorus x2]
(DARKNESS)
I can write a verse and take the sun away.
(DARKNESS)
Say goodbye to light because it's gone today.
(DARKNESS)
Ain't no smilin', happiness has gone away.
(DARKNESS)
Watch me paint a pic that'll make you run away.

I'm your worst fear.
I'm your favourite.
I'm your acquired taste.
Will you savour it?
If it's blood thirst, will you run from it?
No need cause i'm inside you when the sun is lit.
You cannot escape me, i'm your last resort.
When you have an evil you cannot retort.
I am devoid of sunshine, malicious, vain and heartless.
If ever you need an alibi, rely on me I am...

[Chorus x2]
(DARKNESS)
I can write a verse and take the sun away.
(DARKNESS)
Say goodbye to light because it's gone today.
(DARKNESS)
Ain't no smilin', happiness has gone away.
(DARKNESS)
Watch me paint a pic that'll make you run away.

Run Away.

DARKESS.
