Well, you're my friend and can you see?
Many times we've been out drinking
Many times we've shared our thoughts
But 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
But can you see this opposition, comes rising up sometimes?
That it's dreadfull and position, comes blacking in my mind

And there I see a darkness
And there I see a darkness
And there I see a darkness
And there I see a darkness
Did you know how much I love you?
Here's a hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness

Well I hope that someday buddy, we'll have peace in our lives
Together or apart alone or with our wives
And 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

Oh no, I see your darkness
Oh no, I see your darkness
Oh no, I see your darkness
Oh no, I see your darkness
Did you know how much I love you?
Here's a hope that somehow you
Can save me from this darkness
