    Lyrics

    When they went to bed that night, no one would have believed
    That in the morning, light would not be there
    The dark hung heavy on the air of the grip of a jealous man
    No place was there known to have been spared
    Then panic took control of minds as fear hit everyone
    The day the light went out of the daytime sky

    Artificial light could hardly penetrate the gloom
    Nothing out of reach could be observed
    Looting, pillage, murder, rape became the rule of that day
    Who hit him, no one knew or whom he hit
    Cars were caught in pileups and the planes could never land
    The day the light went out of the daytime sky

    Now I can rest here after my journey
    Now I can feed here before I continue

    Some there were whose heads were clear, who sought, tried to find
    The nature of this deadly foe, the dark
    It seemed the sun was still somewhere though hidden from their sight
    By something, though amorphous yet alive
    And so they looked for ways to rid themselves of the parasite
    The day the light went out of the daytime sky

    Now I can rest here after my journey
    Now I can feed here before I continue

    They tried in many fruitless ways to see the noonday sun
    By blasting with their missiles through the dark
    But soon a kind of sleepy state came over everyone
    Till nothing seemed to stir or even breathe
    And when the darkness chose to disappear not many had survived
    Then came a shadow, another had arrived
    And again the light went out of the daytime sky
