"Darkness" as written by and Stephan/cadogan Jenkins....
Blue come over
Born a joneser
And the cops roll out the radar
And shoot devious grins
Another day begins
I want someone to know me
Maybe tell me who I am
Cause I've faced down my demons
And cried out to a god
A god I've never seen
Lights
And the world darkens around me
Strange friends all surround me
New ideas in my head start to burn
Dropped out of schools cause of things I never learned
And the world darkens around me
World darkens around me
I want you to love me
Like you did before you knew me
And I never thought there'd be any help
For somebody like me
A vacancy
Sing
And the world darkens around me
Strange friends all surround me
New ideas in my head start to burn
Trust no one is the one thing that I learned
And the world darkens around me
World darkens around me
Bring me the sun
Slide off the moon
Yeah, you better get home soon
Slide off the moon
There's no hope for people like you and me
Bring me the sun, cause I slide off the moon
Bring me the sun

    General CommentThis song is the exact way I feel about things. Life is so screwed up and you just want some simple, but so complicated things, and the whole world always seems to be darkening around you.

    General CommentI agree completely with riskbreaker, this song (for me) epitomizes the shitty burnt out feeling you get after you've been down for a long time. It's like where you're at the point that you don't even feel sad or depressed, you just feel gone and nothing will bring you back.

    My Interpretation"I want you to love me
    Like you did before you knew me
    And I never thought there'd be any help for somebody like me
    A vacancy"

    He wants her to love him the way they were initially; she didn't know him. She didn't know him, because he isn't anyone (or at least that's how he feels "a vacany" and he's asking for someone to "tell me who I am" because he doesn't know who he he is). She found something about him attractive-even if it was ephemeral and now is gone or the face he put on for everyone to hide his vacancy. He wants her love-even if she isn't seeing him for him. He doesn't think there would be any help or companionship for someone who is empty and has nothing to offer-"a vacancy"

    General CommentI never read "Jesus' Son" but i saw the movie. Its about a Cocaine or heroin addict. And how he wants to be clean but he cant. I dont know how it totally links to that... But i think in the there is a reference to darkness. Im pretty sure my friend showed me.

    General CommentTis most definately about the book "Jesus' Son"....read the book....you'll understand. The movie isn't an amazingly good depiction of the book

    General Comment3eb never ceases to amaze me. i love this song.

    my favorite line is, "i want someone to know me, maybe tell me who i am, cause i've faced down my demons and cried out to a god, a god i've never seen."

    i don't know if this song has a religious aspect to it, however i do feel that it shows him reaching out through the darkness to find...relief?

    Peace,
