and this dark fire makes us

the paths after dark
make the search for light
a horrid task
a difficult care

combing the dawn of all its night
sorting for light in the pile of night there

oh, the sensible man knows
there’s less light in night
a million times over more light in day

but we are possessed
and this dark fire makes us
hunt light in night, compels us to say

it’s not how much light
you’ve got from the night
but knowing the way
you’ve made the night pay
