lyrics

Jay Clementi

Midnight coffee in a dust bowl trailer
Getting some of that graveyard humor
Fighting over the nights' assignments
Working on the scheme of maneuver

Gathered round watching the feed
How many mag’s do you think we’ll need
Building up a charge & prepping the fuse
Watching for the gates the bad guys never use
Bout to go

Into the darkness
Don’t know what’s waiting behind that door
A scared little kid or just another one room war
I know my boys need me now, I’m not gonna let em down
Times like these are the hardest
Walking into the darkness darkness into the darkness

Three bedrooms on a quiet street
She was my everything
We got lost along the way
She’d rather drink these days

That sun ain’t even set
And I’m standing on our front steps
Bout to go

Into the darkness
Don’t know what’s waiting behind that door
Will she have dinner on the table or be passed out on the floor
I know that she needs me now, and I don’t wanna let her down
Times like this are the hardest
Walking into the darkness into the darkness darkness

Tired of fighting these demons within
Just wanna look in the mirror again
I don’t wanna go

Into the darkness
Don’t wanna open that door
All I want is the future I’ve been hoping for
But I’m gonna face it now, I’m not gonna let me down
Just like my heart is
I’m so damn done with all this
Walking into the darkness into darkness into the darkness darkness
Well I don’t want I don’t want no more darkness
