Dead Day and Torched Night

Night choked on the sun
Now dim and dwindling, the light faded
The street lights guided his way, but he wasn't lost
If Night held his breath

Blinding flashes now killing all the desert life
And Night swallowed every watt of light

Where the sky and earth would never meet
Her long white hair swayed and played
And pitch black eyes that sent shivers down Night's spine
She was polished and clean, bright and commanding

Her warm hand caressed his own cold and pale one
Night shivered and pulled away
Day burst ablaze with fury

Blossomed into a battery powered ballad
Thirsty for lazy smiles that play across dreadful faces
When they seek refuge in the comfort of a melody

But this is an outdated affection
The industrial age powers forth a more commanding tune
Rhythmically blinding, discombobulating our youth
Our tunes frantic, direct, simplistic in desire
