        Look out, cause there's something wrong
        and you don't know what it is
        Watch out, or it's Sodom and Gommorah
        the malevolent order
        Right now, before it's much too late
        before it's much too late

        A dark light, a darkness never ending
        a dark light, the devil gets his due
        A dark night, is everywhere descending
        a dark light, is coming for you

        Now look up, well the skies are black
        and they're getting darker all the time
        Watch out, for the things that you believe in
        you're gonna be attacked, and you won't know what it is
        Wise up, you better watch your step
        you better watch your step

        A dark light, a darkness never ending
        a dark light, of perversion and hate
        A dark night, is everywhere descending
        a dark light, there's no time to wait

        Look out, for the death of love
        there will be no more love
        Watch out, it's yourself that you are fooling
        who do you think you're fooling
        Shout it out, it's a terrible thing
        such a terrible thing

        A dark light, a darkness never ending
        a dark light, the sun is turning cool
        A dark night, is everywhere descending
        a dark light, is shining at you

        Dark light
        Dark light
        is shining at you
        Dark light
