Editors - Darkness At The Door Lyrics




This is our corner of the planet
It's the straight edges we inhabit
We ignore the darkness at the door
Turn the lights out if you hear me
Stop your screaming, just speak clearly
The lonely and the righteous
I just need friends and nothing more

This old town still gets out of line
Darkness at the door to greet me
This old town still gets out of line
Darkness at the door to greet me

It's the first sign of an affliction
Familiarity of an addiction
That old friend's a welcome sight
I like it when I see him
He covers up the world we live in
Lights a firework in my pocket
Some friends are worth the fight

This old town still gets out of line
Darkness at the door to greet me
This old town still gets out of line
Darkness at the door to greet me

Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town
Darkness at the door to greet me
Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town
Darkness at the door to greet me
Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town
Darkness at the door to greet me
Never lonely, never lonely, never lonely in town
Darkness at the door

I must manage expectations
My idols are revelations
I hope I never meet them

This is our corner of the planet
It's the straight edges we inhabit
Just friends and nothing more
Become the darkness at the door

This old town still gets out of line
Darkness at the door to greet me
This old town still gets out of line
Darkness at the door to greet me
This old town still gets out of line
(Waiting for the darkness, waiting for the darkness)
Darkness at the door to greet me
This old town still gets out of line
(Waiting for the darkness, waiting for the darkness)
Darkness at the door to greet me

    VI olence is a great album and more you listen more you discover something new. Anyway, at first sight, Darkness at the Door was obviously not my thing. For me it was one of 2 or 3 songs that i choose to ignore. And when i realized that the new video came for this song, it was a disappointment. After that something has changed and now this one is my favourite after Cold. Thanks so much Editors, whole album is pure magic!

  8. M –

    Wtf? Now they sound like David Bowie feat. Coldplay.

  9. Meneer Ton

    This old town still gets satellite 🎵

  10. lee birbeck

    love this song so much...……...and the album is amazing....Oct.11th...Newcastle.....gonna be hellish man...

  11. vaso sn

    What a band man! Keep doing what you're doing!

  12. 128-192

    this is embarassingly poor. LOL.....wow it's amazing how horrible they are now.

  13. kjell Huyghe

    i was in sportpalis antwerp belguim with the editors
    this year

  14. roy pulse

    At the beginning i hate this song now I love it and singing and dancing like an alien is growing inside my guts

  15. Interbasser

    Oh my god this is aweful... editors are dead

  16. Francisco Ramirez Torres

    Hi, I'm currently having a problem and I was not sure where to complain about it. I'll try to explain what's wrong:
    1) I went to Editors concert at Razzmatazz in Barcelona on April 26th.
    2) There I wanted to buy the tour T-Shirt but in the stand, they didn't accept credit card.
    3) The next day (April 27th) I bought the tour T-Shirt from your merch site at Kontraband store. The order was taken correctly and I got the confirmation that the purchase was made and that the money was taken from my account.
    4) Since I choose the option of an untracked mail service I waited for a long time to see if the order was on its way. To be sure I checked my order and my address and contact info were correct.
    5) I realized that it was nearly 45 days since I made the purchase and I had no information about my order so I contacted the customer support from Kontraband Merchandise.
    6) They reply me by telling me this: "We're sorry to hear that your order hasn't arrived. Normally, we'd arrange for a replacement to be sent out, but the shirt that you've ordered is now SOLD OUT. Would you like another design from the store? Or would you prefer a refund?"
    7) At that point, I was upset because I really wanted that tour T-Shirt, but I replied immediately by choosing two other options from the store.
    8) It's been almost 10 days since I first contacted customer support and they haven't replied to me since.
    I'm really upset and unhappy with Kontraband's service since the money was taken from my account I literally feel like I've been robbed

    It's a shame that an awesome band has this awful merch service. I'll try to post this on everywhere so no other fan will have to go through this bad experience ever again.

    I'm very disappointed, hope you can do something about it.

    Thanks,
    Francisco.

    Victor Gadêlha

    Meu sonho, eles NUNCA vieram pra cá, infelizmente

  22. Robert Ward

    Sounds like background muzak for Britain's Got Talent

  23. samonik _

    The audio quality of this is very dull. no?

  24. Magdalena M

    I love it! ❤

  25. Barry Rowlings

    Sounds like the 1975 and thats not good. A rare miss from Editors.

  26. cyberarn24

    What happened Editors? Your first album was great, this song is so uninspired and sounds like everthing else nowadays!

  27. mond mond

    the editors are so awesome live! so much passion, loved it <3

  29. Peter Hay

    Fuck me, literally the worst song they've ever made and they release it as a single.

  30. Murat Kaya

    i got old taste. :)

  31. Jennifert Muñoz

    Me encantaaaan!

  32. CaptainOatwright

    Although the chorus is rather Katy Perry/ Ellie Golding like it's a reasonable pop song. Also verses sound a bit Peter Gabrielesque . Not best on the album though.

  33. Andy Hurst

    Much much better from the Editors! At their best when doing a buzzing tune. What a band!!!

  34. Martin Davis

    Was this filmed at the ziggo dome - amsterdam

    Appoldro

    read the effing description.

    Martin Davis

    Appoldro yh did see after cheers for the effing reply.

  35. Bigfoot Is Out There

    Powerful material

  36. Kevin Augustijn

    Hmmm, I clearly remember Tom using different moves at the "some friends are worth a fight!" bit. So not exclusively shot at the Ziggo gig. Loved the live version much better than the studio version, shame you didn't use that for this video!

  37. David Lounsberry

    Not a fan of this one...

  38. Cayit

    This shouldn't be the NEW single from Violence, on the Album are better tracks...

  39. TigressSky

    Amazing! Your lyrics and arrangements always are.

  40. Down Mirror

    This is weird cause this song is nothing Editors

  41. Nigel Hendriks

    Sorry man... But this is easily your dullest album to date. Sounds a bit uninspired

    Nigel Hendriks

    The Good Guy Just because snails taste better than shit does not necessarily mean that they taste good.

    Benjamin Davis

    It’s their best album since their 3rd so your ears are dull

    Nigel Hendriks

    Yet their third album is also one of their weakest to date, so your ears must be the dull ones.

    Benjamin Davis

    Nigel Hendriks not really my favourite editors album is Black Room then it’s an end then it in the light then violence then in dreams then weight of your love

    Nigel Hendriks

    Ben Davis Alright then. I suppose it’s just a matter of taste, since mine is:
    - An End Has a Start
    - The Weight of your Love
    - The Back Room
    - IN DREAM
    - In this light and on this evening
    - Violence
    xD

  42. MORGAN VOICE COACHING

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. Christof Busen

    even the take that refrain can't ruin this great song

  44. Tyke63360

    Bloody Brilliant!!!!

  57. juankZ

    Rezvani is out of ideas.

    Michal Bryks

    Or perhaps the band is touring extensively and they don't have time for a proper video?

    juankZ

    Check theyr previous video, Hallelujah ;)

  58. Daniel de Angelis

    Editors the best band in the world

    olivia Lee

    A brilliant song with a Video I absolutely love!

    Le carolingien

    Yeap and there are also few bands which sound like "dark" old Editors (I think) and that I like very much too :)

    In Letter Forms "Edison's Medicine" (unfortunately the leader/composer/singer had just passed away)

    Principe Valiente "The Night" (maybe with a goth touch)

    Jack Hillside "Stockholm" (a still mysterious brand-bew band)

    roberlevi

    I was a big Editors fan but this new album is just worthless freaking stupid... they are done for good

    Hien Tran

    Everyone's saying the MV should've been something else and, nah, at last someone thinks this is one of the best ones on the new album, too.

  75. Omi Frankie

    With this pictures in mind...now it's even more fun to hear this great song! 😍😎

  76. Dave Williams

    I thought it would be cold next but it really doesn't matter. Any track would have been fine by me. See you in October.

  77. Al Aous

    It's a very upbeat and nice one but not a music video material to be honest , u should've done "Cold" or "Nothingness" !

    Electric Mars

    As a long time fan I couldnt disagree more. I thought seeing them live with a nice asthetic was really cool

    Al Aous

    well also as a long time fan : I check their live performances all the time dude ! there's a reason why this video will struggle to get views , it's not a major hit of the album , it's also directed by Rahi :$
    I say that because I want Editors to get a bit more recognition , more commercial success I mean , they totally deserve it

    Electric Mars

    Who cares about comerical success or views. Basing art on success is ignorant.

    Al Aous

    I agree , but a bit of more recognition and success won't hurt them all

    MrsP

    Upbeat music, dark lyrics.

  78. maria k

    Love it!

  79. Ahmed Mustafa

    Great music & lyrics from Editors as usual .

  80. yelyahkirsten
