When I was born, I shamed the Dawn, and saw the angels cry
I raised my arms and made the stars tremble in the sky
And when I sang the choirs were humbled
When I danced the mountains crumbled
I chased the waves right back into the sea

I feasted on the fatted calf, I drank whole cities dry
I made the devil dance for me, and I spat into his eye
I said 'so long Jack, we hardly knew ya, here's to hell' and hallelujah
Take this rock and shake it 'til it bleeds

'Cause these are dark days indeed, these are dark days indeed
These are dark days, dark days
These are dark days indeed

We don't know who put this cup of life into our hands
But when we go our bones will bake upon the burning sands
'cause we walk but once among the living, so no regrets and no forgiving
Hard to dance when you're down upon your knees

And these are dark days indeed, these are dark days indeed
These are dark days, dark days
These are dark days indeed
