Dark Matter Lyrics

[Verse 1: Eddie Vedder]
Steal the lights from our eyes
Take my blood from my heart
We're in all of this dark matter
Take the breaths from my chest
Take the pulse and I'm...
We're losing time, dark matter
Denounce the demagogues
King diamond to discard
Deploy the dialogue
Your word against the law

[Chorus: Eddie Vedder & All]
It's strange these days
When everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
This blame takes shape
Still everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake

[Verse 2: Eddie Vedder]
You're running away
We're pulling apart
In all of this dark matter
I once had a...
Or is it the press
No one knows what happens next
Renounce the demigods
King diamond to discard
Deploy the dialogue
Your word against the law

[Chorus: Eddie Vedder & All]
It's strange these days
When everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
This blame takes shape
Still everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake

[Bridge: Eddie Vedder]
No tolerance for intolerance so I've
No patience left for impatience no more
No love lost for lost loves
No sorrow for the unaccountable

[Chorus: Eddie Vedder & All]
It's strange these days
When everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
This blame takes shape
Still everybody else pays
For someone else's mistake
