  • Bury me in silence for I'll never hear the truth
    My coffin will be empty 'cause you'll never steal my youth

    I was born to live beside you but you tried to stop me grow
    Now I'm living on the run from all this hatred you now love
    Who said it only rains from the heavens above

    [Chorus]
    The speed of darkness lights our way
    We set our course for America
    No bitterness will bite my tongue
    The speed of darkness has begun

    It's something of a pity but you'll never understand
    How a boy can grow and still never be a man

    I would trade the sun for nothing and the glancing of a star
    If you could just remember grains of dust is all we are
    It only takes a second for a beat to kill a heart

    The speed of darkness lights our way
    We set our course for America
    No bitterness will bite this tongue
    I've reconciled with all that's gone
    The speed of darkness has begun

    Only time and life will tell
    But it's a long way home when you're in hell
    Where constant demons fracture souls
    Once a nightmare, now just lifeless ghosts

    The speed of darkness lights our way

    You tore this land asunder but my pride will bring it back

    I would trade the sun for nothing and the glancing of a star
    If you could just remember grains of dust is all we are
    It only takes a second for beat to kill a heart

    [Chorus] Writer/s: Bridget A Regan, David R King, Dennis Casey, George Edward Schwindt, Matthew A Hensley, Nathen Maxwell, Robert Anthony Schmidt
