Lyrics

Coming on to the light of day we got
Many moons that are deep at play so I
Keep an eye on the shadow smile
To see what it has to say
You and I both know
Everything must go away
What do you say?

Spinning off, head is on my heart
It's like a bit of light in a touch of dark
You got sneak attack from the zodiac
But I see your fire spark
Keep the breeze and go
Blow by blow and go away
What do you say?
Yeah

You don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design
And tell the world that I'm
Falling from the sky
Dark necessities are part of my design

Stumble down to the parking lot
You got no time for the afterthought
They're like ice cream for an astronaut
Well, that's me looking for weed
Turn the corner
And find the world at your command
Playing the hand
Yeah

You don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design
Tell the world that I'm
Falling from the sky
Dark necessities are part of my design

Do you want this love of mine?
Darkness helps us all to shine
Do you want it, do you want it now?

Do you want it all the time?
But darkness helps us all to shine
Do you want it, do you want it now?

Pick you up like a paper back with the
Track record of a maniac so I
Move it in and we unpack
It's the same as yesterday
Any way we roll
Everything must go away
What do you say? Yeah

You don't know my mind
You don't know my kind
Dark necessities are part of my design

Tell the world that I'm
Falling from the sky and
Dark necessities are part of my design
