The Dark

Lyrics

Verse:
I give my name to the dark
waiting for my turn to start
why is this room with no light
yet i continue to write
living by no consequence
the absence of my confidence
has brought me to the bottomless
pits of exposed consciousnesses

chorus:
no matter how fast i try to run
i could never ever reach the sun
eventually i end up too far from
the only place where it feels so numb

verse:
i point my finger and laugh
at the old sorrowful man
thinking i've killed all my fears
but he's lived millions of years
despaired i lie in my bed
joined by naive which have led
me to believe this was it
my wants and my needs caused this

chorus:
no matter how fast i try to run
i could never ever reach the sun
eventually i end up too far from
the only place where it feels so numb

outro:
that's why i always go back to
the very first place i met you
the only place i could call home
the only place i wont be alone

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh

-- Official AIM review --

Both the lyrics and vocals are absolutely beautiful and go very well with the artwork! Not often I hear stuff like this on here.
Mixing is also very well done.
I think the track could benefit from some more dynamic variation as it sounds a bit flat all the way through. There's really no climax. In this type of basic verse, chorus, verse, chorus you would usually want to change up the instrumental during the second chorus as that's usually where you would expect a climax. Without it, it can easily end up sounding very repetitive.

Overall a strong entry that was very well executed
