about

All of the Dark is the conclusion of our story. At the beginning of the album our protagonist was escaping the clutches of the evil, totalitarian government and going in search of his lover. But after her death in Fire Flower Heart and his last, explosive act in Set Light to the Sky, he has nothing left. He therefore chooses the only option. He goes back to where he started...

lyrics

Make me less than nothing
Make me greyer than ghost
A whisper of a memory you can't quite recall
I'll be less than nothing
I will be smoke, mist, gone

Make me nameless and faceless
Scratch out eyes and teeth and soul
Make me blank and empty and void and nothing
I'll be on the wind
Smoke mist gone

Can you take
All of the dark
All of the things I've believed
All of the dark
All of the things that I've seen
All of the poison you think you can drain
Leave so me so numb I won't feel again
All of the dark
All of the things I don't need

Make me less than nothing
Make me greyer than ghost
Make a whisper of a memory you can't quite recall
I'll be less than nothing
I will be smoke, mist, gone

Run faster run
The further you can run
The freer you will be
Run faster run
Happy people never run they never flee
They never flee

Make me nameless and faceless
Scratch out eyes and teeth and soul
Make me blank, empty, void and nothing at all
I'll be on the wind
Smoke mist gone

Can you take
All of the dark
All of the things I've believed
All of the dark
All of the things that I've seen
All of the poison you think you can drain
Leave so me so numb I won't feel again
All of the dark
All of the things I don't need
