© 1988, Roy Stucky

I grew up knowing right
Despite what people did.
The preacher spoke the light
And that's how I tried to live.

But I grew to wonder
About that other side,
Forbidden fruit
My quiet life denied.

Dark illumination
What can you show?
Dark illumination
I want to know
Everything.

I'm sitting on a sofa,
TV blues the smoke.
I'm laughing like a jester
But can't recall the joke.

Dark illumination
What do you have for me?
Dark illumination
Can I pay the fee
You bring?

Your hands don't tremble
When you touch my cheek.
Yes I am learning -
But we don't speak.

I step across the narrow doubt
That only losers win this race.
I dare to suck the marrow out
Then find that something takes its place.

The tiny taste I take in haste
Won't ruin ME like some I know.
There is no time for me to waste
On waiting years for seed to grow.
One taste and then I'll let it go.

Dark illumination
Dance before my eyes.
Dark illumination
While you supply
The sting.

Now I know just why
Evil knowledge cost us Eden's sky.
Now I know just why
Friends at school would hide their face to cry.
Yes I know just how
Ugly laughs at sacred beauty's vow.
Yes I know just how
Breaking free's become my duty now.

Dark illumination
Now I feel the need
Dark illumination
Of the vulture's creed.
Dark illumination
No longer naive
As to why Jesus' love
Made Him grieve.

Dark illumination
Was there no other way
For a sheltered child
To learn to pray?
