"DARK MATTER"

Steal the light from our eyes
Drain the blood from our hearts
In all of this dark matter
Take the breath from our chest
Break the thoughts in our mind
We're losing time, dark matter

Denounce the demigods
King diamond to discard
Deploy the dialogue
Your word against the law

It's strange these days
When everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
This blame takes shape
Still everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake

Eroding away
We're pulling apart
In all of this dark matter
I once heard it said
And it stuck in my head
Arrested the press
No one knows what happened next

Renounce the demagogues
King diamond to discard
Deploy the dialogue
Your word against the law

It's strange these days
When everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
This blame takes shape
Still everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake

No tolerance for intolerance or
No patience left for impatience no more
No love lost for
Lost loves
No sorrow for
The unaccountable

It's strange these days
When everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
This blame takes shape
Still everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake

(Thanks, LizJ.)
I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    Denounce the demigods / king diamond to discard / deploy the dialog / your word against the law,” he sings before the chorus, which carries the repeated couplet “it’s strange these days, when everybody else pays for someone else’s mistake / this blame takes shape, still everybody else pays for someone else’s mistake.”

    And all of there is is

    And a stick on my head

    A few more things to work out, but I don't want to overplay this song just yet. I'll revisit it tomorrow (or hopefully someone else will figure it out before then).

    EDIT: Also, when you have something to say-- which this song clearly does-- a lyric video would have been welcome.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    stuck in my head
    Arrested the press
    no one knows what happened next

  • I definitely hear "Deplore the dialogue" and "display distaste". Which seem to match each other thematically.

    I'm questioning myself now....
    I think it might be "There's blame to shame".

    I'm also not hearing the s in "happens" so I think that it might be "No one knows what happened next". And so that indecipherable verse might be in the past tense. Because to me, it sounds like it started "I once... "

    I think that middle line of the chorus might be “Display cliches”. It fits thematically, and if I listen with that in mind I literally can’t hear anything else. 🤷🏻‍♂️
