what is this darkness lyrics – brave combo

what is this darkness?
that’s right behind your couch
that strangles you on tv
and puts cotton in your mouth?
there’s a bomber overhead
and there’s a famine down the street
what is this darkness that we’re afraid to meet?
a network interruption
a tv bulletin
our eyes are glued to the screen
there’s a monster coming in
in about an hour
that’s when the torture starts
a sound is in the living room
and it almost stops your heart
what is this darkness
that paralyzes us
that makes the world a monster
and takes away our trust.
