When Darkness Falls Lyrics

As you walk the path of least resistance
Is it as simple as you claim it to be?
Your tongue, your eyes
Your lies, they do deceive you

I stand firm in my solidarity
The path I walk, I walk it with my own resolve
When darkness falls we are...

    I think it is about the fallen angels (those who rebelled against God) being reborn after dark. they mention the fall of man which would signify the clash in heaven between the archangel michael and Lucifer, the original fallen archangel who became the antithesis of God and his creations, mainly man:

    When darkness falls (when darkness falls)
    We are reborn
    Our dream since the fall of man
    We are reborn

    We are the remnant
    We the remnant will silence them all
    We are the faithful
    We the faithful will silence them all
    Silence them all

    I interpret this song as a song about a man and a woman who discover a new side to themselves at night. 'when darkness falls, we are reborn'. Darkness could also represent death and the idea that if a couple is separated by death, if the living half dies they are re-united in heaven. Perhaps that is why the chrous is more harmonious than the verses symbolizing the love or harmony that the couple experience when they are re-united.
