"In The Darkness" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Amir Davidson, Ryan Christopher Shuck and Anthony Valcic....
I want to cut through my skin
And pull you within
My heart burns like the sun
As our flesh becomes one

In the darkness, my heart aches at the sight of you
Trembles and quakes within sight of you
In the darkness

Our bodies burning, tides are turning, somehow stopping time
What is becoming of my heart and mind?

In the darkness, all that you want from me, is all I have to give
In the darkness, coming so easily, learning how to live
In the darkness, all that you want from me, is all I have to give
In the darkness, coming so easily, learning how to live

I will surrender my sin
And give you control
Make me a martyr for love
Till the habits abide

In the darkness, my heart aches at the sight of you
Trembles and quakes within sight of you
In the darkness

Our bodies burning, tides are turning, somehow stopping time
What is becoming of my heart and mind?

In the darkness, all that you want from me, is all I have to give
In the darkness, coming so easily, learning how to live
In the darkness, all that you want from me, is all I have to give
In the darkness, coming so easily, learning how to live

In the darkness, all that you want from me, is all I have to give
In the darkness, coming so easily, learning how to live
In the darkness, all that you want from me, is all I have to give
In the darkness, coming so easily, learning how to live

    General CommentI love this song! This is an ultimate passion song when you feel that uncontrollable desire towards someone and you just want to spend all night making love to that person and lose yourself in passion.

    "I wanna cut through my skin and pull you within." I thought it was "pour you within" not pull you within but I’m not sure. There is nothing negative about this bit — it’s just about desire and wanting to feel the other person throughout. You want to feel him/her as close as possible and you just wish you could pour them within your blood to feel satisfied.

    "What is becoming of my heart and mind" — I think this is the bit where you are starting to wonder whether you are completely falling for this person and it’s not just physical passion anymore. This is an amazing song, one of my favourites from the album.

    My InterpretationWhere's the opening line? "I wanna cut through my skin / and pull you within." Anyway, I love this song! I actually think it's about the writer having an affair or cheating on a significant other and they're singing to the outside lover.

    "My heart burns like the sun / as our flesh becomes one" is probably sex, the moment they start doing it, lol. The heart burning is probably how wrong the infidelity feels.

    "My heart aches at the sight of you / trembles and quakes within sight of you / in the darkness" makes me think that.

    Also, "make me a martyr for love / 'til the habits abide" and "I will surrender my sin."

    Plus Chester sings, "what is becoming of my heart and mind?" Like he didn't make the right decision in cheating or having the affair (mind) and he's becoming callous and cold (heart).

    General CommentIt comes through to me to be about two lovers surviving in the "darkness" which probably represents suffering of the world around them. Chester mentions lines of both joy and suffering when with the "you" of the song, in the "darkness." The martyr part is about either through joy or suffering lover gives Chester faith, to survive/trust in their love in the "darkness." That's my take on it.

    General Commenti like this song.

    its obviously about "making love" in the dark. im assuming its about his wife. i dont necessarily think its about cheating. Out of Ashes is about chesters new life. becoming a new person. its pretty much all positive

    My Interpretationyeah i think this song is about sex between 2 people who love each other but the love sounds all consuming. There's a kind of sadness about the song too almost like the man is tormented in some way and emotionally clinging to the girl xxxx
