So maybe later, man
There's an elegant land
In the darkness
And maybe in the mind
It's a hell of a time
In the darkness
And maybe in space
There's an alien race
I wouldn't be surprised
So without further ado
We'd like to introduce you to
The darkness
Standing in the countryside
With soda pop and Montebay
He's always standing outside, looking in
They smile but they don't look at him
They say that it may take a while
To put more diamonds in my smile
And maybe I won't even go to work that day
I don't care if I'm in trouble at all
I'll just sit on this hill
With my fingers in the still
Of the darkness

    My InterpretationWith ' the darkness ' , I think he's referring to all the various ideas, systems, lifestyles.... that makes living easier, and more enjoyable; but aren't popular in the mainstream, thereby leading it to a tag of ' the darkness '

    He expresses how this 'darkness', can possibly be an awesome place, and an amazing experience...

    He then introduces ' the darkness ' as this chill figure, chilling at the countryside with some drinks at hand, now moving it's view from dark... then he goes on to explaining how ' the light ' (I like to call it that) wants to come in, due to the forces of people like him...

    But 'they' just smile, ignoring ' the light ' ....
    and go on to say that it'll take time, as an attempt to make the singer smile.

    In the end, he expresses how he chooses to experience this...
