The Day The Light Went Out

(Lyrics modified/ Original by Genesis)

In Memory of the Victims, of the July 2011 Norway Terrorist Attack










When they went to bed that night no-one would have believed
That in the morning light would not be there
The dark hung heavy on the air like the grip of a mad man
No place was there known to have been spared
Then anger took control of minds as anguish hit everyone
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

Artificial light could hardly penetrate the gloom
Nothing out of reach could be observed
Murder, murder and more murder became the rule of that day
What hit him no one knew but whom he hit
Innocents were caught in pileups and youth that could never breathe again
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

“How I can rest here after such horror
How I can recoup here before I continue”

Some there were who’s heads were clear who sought, tried to find
The nature of this deadly evil, the dark
It seemed the sun was still somewhere though hidden from their sight
By something, though amorphous, yet alive
And so they looked for ways to rid themselves of the cancer
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

“How I can rest here after such horror
How I can recoup here before I continue”

They tried in many fruitless ways to see the noonday sun
By blasting with their sorrow through the dark
But soon a kind of silent state came over everyone
Till nothing seemed to stir or even breathe
And when the darkness chose to disappear will many have survived?
Then came a candle – then another, and more candles had lighted
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

暗然無光的那一天

早一個晚上, 就寢時, 又有誰會想到,
明日, 是暗然無光
沈沈的漆黑, 緊緊地抓着, 有如狂人的魔掌
全無倖免
憤怒, 由絕望而生
暗然無光的那一個白天

人工電光, 衝不破那陰沉
到處, 還是黑漆一片
屠殺, 屠殺, 大屠殺, 盡在那一天
誰知道, 他為何突然着了魔, 但受害者,
一批又一批的無辜, 不再呼吸的青少年
暗然無光的那一個白天

面對這恐佈, 不能休息
沈着氣, 勇往直前

清醒的頭腦, 在追究
這邪惡, 黑暗的成因
陽光還是被隱藏
一股無形的力量
要切底消除這毒瘤
暗然無光的那一個白天

面對這恐佈, 不能休息
沈着氣, 勇往直前

出盡辨法, 慕求重見天日
向黑暗, 放出悲痛的炮火
不久, 一切歸於沈默
靜靜的, 透不過氣来
黑暗就算消失, 生還者又有多少
一枝臘燭點着了, 又一枝, 更多的, 點着了
暗然無光的那一個白天
