in the city, the day is too hot
and you're hoping for relief, 'cuz your head is filled with pain,
but you get no relief, 'cuz the night is the same...
in the night, in the night you see through jaded eyes.
in the night, in the night you feel barely alive.
you live your life in darkness, you've got pennies on your eyes.
but you say that it's all right, 'cuz you've never lived a lie,
as you crawl back to your womblike existence in the night.
in the night, in the night you see through jaded eyes.
in the night, in the night you feel barely alive.
you can't see no light, but you hear those heavy footsteps,
and the little man inside twists your tormented mind.
your mind is filled with shadows, your palms are wet with sweat.
limbs are bound and tangled in a fatal net.
there are two things you can do.
one is turn and fight.
the other's run headlong into the night.
in the night, in the night you see through jaded eyes.
in the night, in the night you feel barely alive.
you can't see no light, but you hear those heavy footsteps,
and the breathing at your side, is it yours, or is it
good bye!

    General CommentI think this song is about the choice of death (literal or not) or fighting for your chance to survive. Nothing changes if you choose to go into the night and drift away.

    General CommentI think this song relates to their non-religious thoughts, there is no light at the end, there is no difference, you just die... at least that is my take on the song

    General CommentThis song is about wanting to cling onto beliefs beyond all reason and common sense. Its about wanting to stay in a philosophical safe zone, where your beliefs aren't challenged and everyone lets knowledge regress into a state of ignorance.

    "as you crawl back to your womblike existence in the night."

    That lyric was the give away, to me.

    "but you hear those heavy footsteps"

    I think the footsteps in this song represent encroaching reason and the marginalizing of religion and its adherents.

    General Commenthmmm.... I think some of you many have over analyzed and scrutinized the lyrics of this one.

    I think this song may just depict how poeple generally live in darkness and shadows ect. but its justified because they feel reveling out in the night validates their existance.

    sometimes Im skeptical of the writers understanding of BR songs ha.
