In the Dark
The Birthday Massacre Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

All these broken pieces left unglued
Should never find their way
Into the hands of someone like you

I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
I've never been here before
Nobody here to get me through
Oh I'm in the dark

Every minute shed is never mine
Frozen in this fog and hiding
Every second in time

I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
I've never been here before
Nobody here to get me through

Oh I'm losing my faith in every way
It points to you
Oh I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
Oh I'm in the dark

The more bleak the day
The less I behave as if
Everything black can wash away
Why can't I just trade a dream for a way
To peel back the shade behind the gray

I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
I've never been here before
Nobody here to get me through

Oh I'm in the dark

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to The Birthday Massacre's song "In the Dark" suggest a feeling of vulnerability and fear. The first two lines describe the speaker's broken pieces that have been left unglued, which they feel should not fall into the hands of someone like the addressee. The imagery of broken pieces suggests that the speaker's emotional state is fragmented, and the fact that they fear giving these pieces to someone else suggests that they may struggle with trust.


The chorus consists of the repetition of "I'm in the dark," which reinforces the feeling of vulnerability and isolation that the speaker is experiencing. They feel alone, and there is nobody there to get them through their dark feelings. However, in the last verse, the lyrics suggest a desire for a way out of the darkness. The speaker seems to be losing their faith, which points to the addressee, suggesting that they are the cause of the speaker's pain. Despite this, the speaker is looking for a way to "peel back the shade behind the gray," perhaps suggesting a desire to uncover the truth and move towards a brighter future.


Overall, the lyrics of "In the Dark" convey a sense of emotional fragility and a desperate need to escape from the dark feelings that are consuming the speaker.


Line by Line Meaning

All these broken pieces left unglued
All these shattered fragments left unrepaired


Should never find their way
Should never reach


Into the hands of someone like you
Into the grasp of someone unworthy


I'm in the dark
I'm in a state of confusion


I'm alone around you
I'm lonely even when I'm with you


I've never been here before
I've never experienced this before


Nobody here to get me through
No one here to help me overcome


Every minute shed is never mine
Every tear shed is wasted


Frozen in this fog and hiding
Stuck in this confusion and concealing


Every second in time
Every moment in existence


Oh I'm losing my faith in every way
I'm losing my trust completely


It points to you
It all leads back to you


The more bleak the day
The darker the day


The less I behave as if
The less I act as though


Everything black can wash away
Everything dark can be cleansed


Why can't I just trade a dream for a way
Why can't I exchange my aspirations for a solution


To peel back the shade behind the gray
To reveal the truth behind the obscurity

All these broken pieces left unglued...
Should never find their way into the hands of someone like you

I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
I never been here before
Nobody here to get me through
Oh, I'm in the dark

Every minute, shed is never mine
Frozen in this fog and hiding every second in time

I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
I never been here before
Nobody here to get me through
Oh, I'm losing my Faith in every way to get to you
Oh, I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
Oh, I'm in the dark

The more weak the day, the less I behave as if everything black can wash away
Or, can I just trade a dream for a way to peel back the shade behind the grey?

I'm in the dark
I'm alone around you
I never been here before
Nobody here to get me through
Oh, I'm in the dark

The birthday massacre has such a unique sound. Its almost like a gothic-supernatural trance. And I LOVE Chibi. She's great!

Mason Kemp

I completely agree! It's such an iconic sound! Even on their most recent album Fascination the song "The End if All Stories" has such a gothic-supernatural sound.. I only heard of this band last year and I love them! Chibi's voice has remained incredible throughout the years which is pretty impressive

Darla Johnson

The Birthday Massacre will forever be my favorite gothic band!

TheBirthdayMassacre_CosmicFan

Just discovered this band last night on YouTube. So far I love every song I have heard. Also proud to learn they are my fellow Canadians! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ
