"Darkest Part" as written by and Michael Armstrong Anthony Armstrong....
You track the doubts of my soul
Until you found it
The darkened room locked away
I let you in

You looked inside then you turned away
My makeshift savior
He left me right here in my chains
But still I whisper
Still I call you

I never wanted you to see
The darkest part of me
I knew you'd run away
I waited, but you never came

So afraid to be alone
I tried to let you go
And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me

It's my decent to know your pain
It's watching all I believed fade away

Half traitors and fools
Half beggars and thieves
Which mask will you choose
What is underneath

I never wanted you to see
The darkest part of me
I knew you'd run away
I waited but you never came

So afraid to be alone
I tried to let you go
And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me

And out of the black state of your perfect life
And out of the darkness that you need to hide
It covers you, it spills over you

I never wanted you to see
The darkest part of me
I knew you'd run away
I waited, but you never came

So afraid to be alone
I tried to let you go
And still I find you lost inside the darkest part of me

    My InterpretationThe person who for the time being I'm going to call him. He fell in love with a person and he decides to show that person what he really is and he didn't want the other to see the darkest part of them but he did and what he feared has come true and his lover has run away from them. That's why he didn't want them to see him for who he really was but it is evitable and now he is slowly turning insane because he has lost this person

    General CommentI at first that this was about God, which I later discovered lyrics like "makeshift savior" and "I tried to let you go". Red is a Christian band so with that considered, what people have been saying on this forum is correct. this man was in love with a woman, so much so that he trusted her enough to show her his tortured past. He didn't realize it'd drive her away. whether that darkest part is being abusive to women, having a bad habit like drugs or alcohol, or not being fully connected with Jesus, there's no telling . but we know that it's about driving a woman away when revealing something deep inside yourself.

    General CommentThis song is like someone was in love so he/she told their lover their darkest secrets and their lover spurred them but yet he/she is still calling out for their lover to understand them...
