The Sweet Black of Night

Why do you yearn for The Sweet Black of Night? For often I have seen your face out of hiding In dimly lit corners of ancient ruins In the deep and jagged cuts of cracked and weather-beaten stone And I have seen you gazing eternally toward The Sweet Black of Night. Your dark countenance wearily creeps West Away from the light of the rising sun In a sad yet cold farewell to The Sweet Black of Night. Your hard features gladly edge East Away from the light of the setting sun Like some monolith of pain Anxiously awaiting The Sweet Black of Night.
