The Darkness
Zombie Girl Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

All alone, flesh and bone, evil carved in stone
Smell the fear
Somewhere up in these hills awaits the darkest chills
Can you hear?

Where are you gonna go?
There's nowhere to go now
Trapped in this world, you're lost forever

There's nobody here to save you
There's nobody near to hear you
There's nobody here to save you
There's nobody near to hear you

In this place, in this time and space
Fear, hate, and evil awaits you
Soon the siren will reign, better run from the pain
Before the darkness will eat you

Go, Go, Get away now
Go, Go, Run away now
Go, Go, Get away now
Go, Go..Go

Where are you gonna go?
There's nowhere to go now
Trapped in this world, you're lost forever

There's nobody here to save you
There's nobody near to hear you

There's nobody here to save you
There's nobody near to hear you

There's nobody here to save you
There's nobody near to hear you





There's nobody here to save you
There's nobody near to hear you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Zombie Girl’s “The Darkness” evoke a feeling of dread as the singer finds themselves alone in a space where evil and fear reside. The opening verse describes the singer as “all alone, flesh and bone” suggesting that they are the only living being in this space. The image of evil being carved in stone adds to the ominous atmosphere. The second line, “smell the fear,” adds to the eeriness, hinting that danger is imminent. The chorus emphasizes the hopelessness of the situation. There is nowhere to go and nobody to hear or save the singer. The repetition of this message amplifies the helplessness of the situation.


The lyrics go on to describe a warning scream (possibly from a siren) that signals an impending danger. The singer is urged to run away from the pain before the ‘darkness’ eats them. The repeated use of the word “Go” in the bridge adds to the urgent tone of the song. The last verse reiterates the danger of the situation, using words such as “fear,” “hate,” and “evil.” This final warning serves to underline how trapped the singer is in this terrifying space.
