Song Lyric Sunday – Lost in Darkness by Escape the Fate

This band was one of the first that my daughter followed religiously and loved wholeheartedly.  The first real concert I took her to was Warped Tour and we were able to see them play.  We were too far away to get much from their set, but she waited in line for hours to get their autographs.  We also ended up catching the lead singer, Craig Mabbitt,  in a tent by himself a few hours later and the girls were able to get a photo with him.  They were in heaven!

When I first started listening to Adelle’s music, I was put off.  But I always let her play it and soon enough, I was just as into it as she was.  Well, maybe not all of it… but there were bands that I hated when I first heard them (this one in particular) but they ended up growing on me.  I don’t particularly care for the songs where they scream the whole time, but this one struck me the minute I heard it.

I think some songs you just connect to; they make you feel something, or remind you of a certain time in your life.  I feel like there were many times in my life where I was “lost in darkness” and the words to this song describe that feeling in such a perfectly raw way.

This is more in the rock/metal area, so if you aren’t into that type of music, feel free to read the lyrics and move on.  For those of you participating this week, choose a rock song you love or just do your own thing.  We all love music here.

Lost in Darkness by Escape the Fate
Written by Escape the Fate
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

She hears a moan at the top of the stairs
But she don’t move or fret just minds her business
“I swear these walls have been talking to me” she says
“Cause all I hear the devils wishes”
She feels his breath down her skin and bones

Crying out in pain
But no one knows how to find you
You’re lost in darkness
Crying out in vain
But no one knows how to reach you
You’re lost in darkness again

By her hair he drags her in the street
He’s free of other’s eyes there are no glances
She cries for help with a gun to her cheek
But no one comes nobody listens
Her blood runs red all through the street

Crying out in pain
But no one knows how to find you
You’re lost in darkness
Crying out in vain
But no one knows how to reach you
You’re lost in darkness
You’re lost in darkness again

I can’t find my inspiration
I can’t find my inspiration
I can’t find my inspiration
I can’t find my inspiration

Crying out in pain
But no one knows how to find you
You’re lost in darkness
Crying out in vain
But no one knows how to reach you
You’re lost in darkness

Crying out again
No one knows how to find you
You’re lost in darkness
Crying out in vain
No one knows how to reach you
You’re lost in darkness
You’re lost in darkness again
