Disturbed – The Night lyrics

What has come over me
What madness taken hold of my heart
To run away, the only answer
Pulling me away
To fall upon (the night)
The source of my recovery
Sweet shadow taking hold of the light
Another day has been devoured
Calling me away, begging a question
Why?

For saving me from all they've taken
Letting my armor fall again
Giving me the strength to face them
Feeling it taking over
Now on a path to take it all away
There can be no better way of knowing

[Chorus:]
In a world beyond controlling
Are you gonna deny the savior
In front of your eyes
Stare into the night
Power beyond containing
Are you gonna remain a slave for
The rest of your life
Give into the night

This self discovery
Redemption taking hold of my mind
A serenade of haunting voices
Calling me away
To feast upon the(the night)
Source of my felicity
Dark Maiden taking hold of my hand
Lead me away from hibernation
Strong and unafraid
Never a question why

For saving me from all they've taken
Letting my armor fall again
Giving me the strength to face them
Feeling it taking over now
On a path to take it away
There can be no better way of knowing

[Chorus:]
In a world beyond controlling
Are you gonna deny the savior
In front of your eyes
Stare into the night
Power beyond containing
Are you gonna remain a slave for
The rest of your life
Give into the night

[Guitar Solo]

Give in to the night

[Chorus:]
In a world beyond controlling
Are you gonna deny the savior
In front of your eyes
Stare into the night
Power beyond containing
Are you gonna remain a slave for
The rest of your life
Give into the night

Night [x3]
Give into the Night
Night [x3]
Give into the Night [x2]

    I wrote a paper about this song because I love it so much. The night represents your pupils when you stare in the mirror. It is a form of mirror gazing, a technique described by Osho. The savior is yourself, as you can see yourself in the reflection of your pupils. The song is soliloquy where the speaker (may or may not be David Draiman) is going through self reflection or a "dark night of the soul" and when he stares into the mirror, asking for a savior he sees himself and realizes he had the power in him all along. That's what I get from this song. My favorite line is "power beyond containing" and I'm thinking about getting that tattooed. We humans forget constantly that we truly have "power beyond containing", our limits are self-inflicted. "In a world beyond containing, are you going to deny the savior in front of your eyes?" Literally he is telling you how to take your power back! Mirror gaze! Scry for answers in a bowl full of water at night! "Give into the night!" Only when we are in complete darkness can we see just how bright we can shine.

    I absolutely love this song. To me it say that for you to deny the fact the individual will have a good thing and let it all walk away the savior being the one to save you from the darkness. The night is that symbol of anger and agony that you have become a slave to and so its controlling you yet theres hope for some in that staring the night and embracing where you went instead of fearing it you rule no loner the slave.
