Our Darkness - Anne Clark
  Through these city nightmares you'd walk with me
  And we'd talk of it with idealistic assurance
  That it wouldn't tear us apart
  We'd keep our heads above the blackened water
  But there's no room for ideals in this mechanical place
  And you're gone now

  Through a grimy window that I can't keep clean
  Through billowing smoke that's swallowed the sun
  You're nowhere to be seen

  Do you think our desires still burn
  I guess it was desires that tore us apart
  There has to be passion
  A passion for living, surviving
  And that means detachment
  Everybody has a weapon to fight you with
  To beat you with when you are down
  There were too many defences between us

  Doubting all the time
  Fearing all the time
  Doubting all the time
  Fearing all the time
  That like these urban nightmares
  We'd blacken each other skies

  When we passed the subways we tried to ignore our fate there
  Of written threats on endless walls
  Unjustified crimes carried in stifled calls
  Would you walk with me now through this pouring rain
  It used to mingle with our tears then dry the hopes that we left behind
  It rains even harder now
