Lyrics
Darker than a shadow
Darker than a shadow
Darker than a shadow.

I was asleep and having dreams
Awakened by a silent scream
A raging wind and clouds of steam
It was... darker than a shadow.

Unprepared for scenes like these
With heavy air and boiling seas
Destruction of societies
It was... darker than a shadow.

What type insanity is this
Standing on a precipice
That leads into a deep abyss
And it is darker than a shadow
Darker than a shadow.

There was a storm like this before
Aftermath where angels walked
Poisoned waters, wasted shores
And it was... darker than a shadow.

Is this all we have learned my friends
We're doing now what they did then
Repeating great mistakes again
Darker than a shadow.

What type insanity is this
We are walking in a scorching mist
Leads down to a deep abyss
And it is darker than a shadow
Darker than a shadow
Darker than a shadow.

And then from out the deepest void
There came a flaming asteroid
One third of this world was destroyed
It was... darker than a shadow.

Mankind was in a raging fit
And thermo-neuclear fires were lit
We never saw the end of it
'Cause it was... darker than a shadow.

What mad insanity is this
Standing on a precipice
That leads into a deep abyss
It is darker than a shadow.

What type insanity is this
Standing on a precipice
That leads into a deep abyss
And it is darker than a shadow
Darker than a shadow. (x 7)
