lyrics

Blame it on the rising darkness
Don’t blame it on the dark inside
Yeah, blame it on the full moon shining in the night and
Tugging on the rising tide

There are forces
In this world we can’t control
Though we may try to understand

We try to grasp it,
Clinging tight to bookmarked bibles
It slips like smoke between our hands

So tell me why
You’re giving into all this darkness
Have you caught glimpses of the plan?

You’re just as clueless
As every one of us
Tough luck—you’re just a simple man

So blame it on the rising darkness
Don’t blame it on the dark inside
Yeah, blame it on the full moon shining in the night and
Tugging on the rising tide

Shadows growing
As the sun sets on this day
It’s hard to tell who’s friend or foe

God, shine a light on
The ones you call your angels
And shelter me from those below

Yeah, there are forces
We may never understand
Try as we may, we can’t control

Fool yourself
Into thinking you know better
The only cost is your damn soul

So blame it on the rising darkness
Don’t listen to the doubt inside
Yeah, blame it on the full moon shining in the night and
Tugging on the rising tide

Blame it on the rising darkness
Don’t blame it on the dark inside
Yeah, blame it on the full moon shining in the night and
Tugging on the rising tide
