From the album DARKNESS IS THE DAY

In cart Not available Out of stock

This is a song that was inspired by the US election and the prevailing global political landscape. Darkness is the Day was written the morning after the election results came in and it echoes the feelings of many who were shocked by them. Today is Inauguration Day and we should all be wide awake now to what lies ahead.
Produced by Aimee Bessada, Rebecca Everett and Todor Kobakov in cooperation with the Slaight Music Residency at the Canadian Film Centre in Toronto.

Lyrics

It takes a little while
To feel the full experience
It takes a little while
To get used to your circumstance
It takes a little time
Just to realize
It takes a little while 

It takes a little time
As if it’s not by accident 
It takes a little time
To find your way to what you get
You've been keeping your time
I've been keeping mine
Waiting for the right time

And the truth is we've been had
The game is just to play
Don’t show your hand too early
The darkness is the day

Opinion is king
One plus one is three
The loudest truth is the truest
So repeat after me
It takes a little time
To get the spin to unwind
It takes a little time

It takes a little time
To get the cement to set
It takes a little time
The ink is still a little wet
You've been keeping your time
I've been keeping mine
Waiting for the right time

And the truth is we've been had, had had
The game is just to play
Don’t show your hand too early
The darkness is the day
