FLYLEAF


In The Dark Lyrics

I've written songs in the dark
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark
I've felt inspired in the dark
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark

I hide myself in the dark
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark
Used to be afraid of the dark
Of the dark, of the dark, of the dark
Those in the light know we die in the dark
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark

There's only artificial light here
My flaws hide well here
I used to be afraid of cluttered noises
Now I'm afraid of silence

Fill this space idle words
I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
Raise me up to live again
Like You did, like You did

Now I am mute despite myself
All of them are gone
The silence overtakes me
The idle words forsake me
And I am left to face me

I'm held accountable for every idle word
Curse the idle words

I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
Raise me up to live again
Like You did, like You did

Glory shows up
Exposes us, I'm naked here
Forsaken here
By the dark, by the dark, by the dark

I'm scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me in side this
Raise me up to live again
Like You did, like You did

No, the Damn the dark isn't a swear word. It's the same as Curse the idle word in the previous verse. It is being used in condemnation of evil. If you've ever read the KJV, damn, damned and damnation are used in their proper context, condemning things, as is this line in the song.

Uh Creed is a christian band and Scott (the lead singer) curses in some of his songs. They are just words used for expression purposes. This song speaks to me I was there once till I was lifted up.

1 Thessalonians 5:5 For you are all children of the light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of darkness. Two masters, one wrapped in light, one hides in the dark. We all serve one.

This song doesnt have problems. Shes talking about her in the past being in a dark place. And she calls on Jesus for help and His light takes over. You gotta really read into it (for Amanda btw haha!)

No, 'kill' is right. You have to die to live, ya know? And, yeah, she does say something else after the second 'by the dark.' I think it's 'damn the dark,' but I'm not completely sure.

Jack here. This song pretty accurately describes my life until recently. It was actually kinda scary the first time I heard it. And as my sister listened to it he had the same reaction I did. Guess all of us can relate huh? Jack Out
