Midnight on this rock third one from the sun
Halfway thru the darkness, who knows what’s to come
Something set two years ago, there’s two long years remaining
in the thick of the rain forest, it just keeps on raining
The midnight monsters mutilate any thought that’s not polite
Its seriously a reckoning, a serious case of midnight

And midnight is a metaphor, a misery in the mud
Will midnight waters save us or drown us in the flood
If we can’t row together, this current will sink the ship
With a thousand stings and poison darts from petty dictatorship
Its time for all our virtues to stand up to their full height
If we are going to come thru this serious case of midnight

It happened at midnight, the ancient sages predicted
Will we afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted?
The dancing of the dragon has revealed a fatal flaw
But will we have the courage and the wisdom of the law
We are hanging in the balance between the darkness and the light
Its time to get serious, it’s a serious case of midnight
