about

This is the 6th (and final) single available now to listen & download FREE from the forthcoming debut album 'The Beginning or The End?' by FLIPSIDE BRIDE. This is the radio edit mix. The album mix contains a longer intro with special atmospheric effects.

Our album is due for release soon in mp3 and CD/DVD format, so if you are unable to download an mp3 of 'Darkness Falls' do send me an email and I'll let you know when the CD/DVD is available to buy.

Manic Pianic wrote this song to try to convey what it is like to suffer with clinical depression - which she battles with from time to time. Therefore, although we are offering this track for FREE (just type in 0.00p), please consider making a donation of your choice to the mental health charity MIND using the 'Buy It Now - Name Your Price' button on this page. We are not taking any money ourselves from the sale of any mp3 downloads. Instead, ALL the profits will be going to MIND who provide valuable advice and support to empower anyone suffering from a mental health problem. They do not use or test on animals. For more info please visit their website: www.mind.org.uk

We have not spent any money on expensive recording costs, etc. since we do it all ourselves.

Thank you very much for your support. We hope you like our song and that it doesn't depress you too much!!! Please help us spread the word.

Wishing you all good mental health.

FLIPSIDE BRIDE :-) xx

lyrics

(Verse 1)
I see the moon in the distance
Approaching hour by hour
Its purpose is to consume me
To greedily devour
I try to fight its allureness
But I can’t find a way
It shines on me with such vengeance
I just don’t have the strength today

(Verse 2)
The stars drop by as spectators
To a game of hide and seek
An unfair match for their amusement
I know I’m far too weak
They play with my emotions
And kick me when I’m down
Taunting me with their insults
Sneering, laughing like a clown

(Chorus)
Darkness falls
And locks me in its grip so tightly I’m not breathing
Darkness falls
Controlling every part of me so I am left completely helpless
Darkness falls
Squeezing every limb and muscle ‘til I’m aching
Darkness falls
Unconscious from this fight
The blackness is so bright tonight

(Verse 3)
The stormy clouds up above me
Rain down upon my head
I look for cover and safety
But all I find instead:
A barren land of desolation
Nowhere to run and hide
I want to escape from all the madness
Believe me when I say I’ve tried

(Extended Chorus)
Darkness falls
And locks me in its grip so tightly I’m not breathing
Darkness falls
Controlling every part of me so I am left completely helpless
Darkness falls
Squeezing every limb and muscle ‘til I’m aching
Darkness falls
I drift into the night
Unconscious from this fight
Please help me find the light
For the blackness is so bright tonight
