Treasure Island

Aric Beers


Darkness, Shadow, Light


We live in this day, this time of night
In this shadow, there's so little light
You hear the cries of war and pain
Every person bound to their chain
Darkness reaches, it crawls, it comes
There's a shadow lurking, hear the drums
This night, it lives, it breaths, it hurts
From it they run, torn pants and shirts
It shows no mercy, this nightly beast
Upon our fear and sorrow does it feast
Darkness, shadow, night, it nears
We're left with naught but fear
Disaster strikes, death will fall
Darkness claims us one and all
The dawn is bleak, grey, it's gone
Hope has left, long moved on
Time is stilled, the watch is stopped
We watch on, ruins, the hammer dropped
But then the change, a brand new sight
There through the clouds comes a light
This light comes, the darkness breaks
It comes with power, the whole earth shakes
Darkness, shadow, and night will run
This day of light, their reign is done
Hope returns, the joy comes back
Happiness does no one lack
Oh what a day, this day of light
This day it comes and defeats the night
Peace and joy, they are restored
We live with light in one accord
