The Darkest One Lyrics

Come in, come in, come in, come in
From under these darling skies come in
It's warm and it's safe here and almost harkening
Off to a time and place now lost on our imagination

where you don't complain, but you still do
and you don't explain, if...

    It’s about the First Nation Canadian Indians.
    It’s about their struggle and the Canadian government absorbing their life and sending them to reservation.

    I think this song is about the place where everyone can do whatever they want without the judgement of anyone. They are 'allowed' to scream outlaid and express tier opinions, where no one judges them and they are free to say and do whatever they want.

    Well I'll give it a try. I think this song is about people who rail at life and how shitty it can be and how they are given a safe place to do that. To get it out and start to deal with it. It's about a safe place to say "I hurt" as loudly and strongly as you need to.
    "Where the wild are strong
    And the strong are the darkest ones
    And you're the darkest one
    Oh and you're the darkest one
    And if that's what you want
    Oh then you're the darkest one"
