After Dark

We all struggle with our respective demons. Some more, some less. «After Dark» is about an alcoholic who is living on the edge, but somehow still manages to hide the addiction and cope with everyday life. But you can clearly tell it's a balancing act in its final phase.

Scared of sunlight
When your flaws are shown
Hiding in the shade of dreadful fears 

Waiting for darkness
To surround your fraud
Remain in the cave until the time has come 

Waiting for the sun to set

Only after dark there’s nothing to lose
In the shelter of the night
Only after dark there’s nothing to prove
Among the creatures of the night
You might win this losing fight

Blooming in blackness
Protected by dense fog
Satisfying any dark demand

Gloomy thunders
Can’t spark a single flame
Heavy secrets taken to your grave

Buried for eternity

Only after dark there’s nothing to lose
In the shelter of the night
Only after dark there’s nothing to prove
Among the creatures of the night
You might win this losing fight

Are you pulled by future?
Are you pushed by past?
Do you hold on to memories creeping in from behind?
Are you doomed forever?
Are you free at last?
Do you rise like a phoenix and prove that you are one of a kind? 

Lyrics: Melanie Schweickardt
Music: Melanie Schweickardt, Christoph Siemons, Fabian Zimmermann

About the Song

"Musically, I love the arrangement and the darkness of the sound. But personally, it was challenging to associate this dark sound with the beloved person I wrote the song about. It took a while until I accepted it. Overall, I think you’ll need several listens to get into the song but will then acknowledge that it is one of the strongest songs of the album Megalomania." - Blazy Flash

About the video

For years, the former residence of the Swiss media dynasty Ringer has stood empty, leaving traces of decay. The surreal aesthetic is a phenomenal eye-catcher and provides the perfect surrounding for «After Dark».
