Well, you're my friend (that's what you told me)
And can you see (what's inside me)
Many times we've been out drinking
And many times we've shared our thoughts
Did you ever, ever notice the kind of thoughts I got?

Well, you know I have a love
A love for everyone I know
And you know I have a drive
To live I won't let go

Could you see it's opposition
Comes rising up sometimes?
And it's dreadful end position
Comes blacking in my mind

And then I see a darkness
And then I see a darkness
And then I see a darkness
And then I see a darkness

Did you know how much I love you?
Is there hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness?

I hope that someday, buddy we'll have peace in our lives
Together or apart, alone or with our wives
We can stop our whoring and pull the smiles inside
And light it up forever and never go to sleep
My best unbeaten brother, this isn't all I see

I know, I see a darkness
I know, I see a darkness
I know, I see a darkness
I know, I see a darkness

Did you know how much I love you?
Is there hope that somehow you
You, can save me from this darkness?
