© 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.

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.

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

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.

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?
