Darkness Comin' On

Story

This song was written as a response to the Wall Street/banking crisis of 2008, but people ask me if it's aimed at the Trump administration.  I guess it could be.

Lyrics

Okay, I guess I get it, what's your next move?

And don't you try to pin the blame on me

It's clear to everybody else except you

You've only fooled yourself with your deceit

Chorus

The sun is going down now, the light is almost gone

The temperature is falling, there's darkness comin' on

 

You cannot lie your way around this, this time

Your motivation's all too clear to see

You violated so many for so long

Now all of them just want to see you bleed

 

CHORUS

 

I can't help but wonder if you've ever given just one thought

To the damage in your wake, the sincerity you fake

 

I don't believe that anything will change you

I'd be amazed to learn you had a heart

The trail of tragedy you've left behind you

Illuminates the monster that you are

 

CHORUS
