John Legend - Marching Into The Dark Lyrics




What can you buy with the ultimate sacrifice
If you don't believe in the afterlife?
Oh I still grieve rememberin' what you were like
Now what good is a dream when the dreamer dies?

Some are better than good
Greater than great
Some are misunderstood
And they get told to wait by

All of the greatest
Greatest of all
Were chasing their fading star
Who'll be the latest
The latest to fall?
We're marching into the dark

What if your like was just in the day to day
And after you're gone the world stays the same?
Why should you love what you're gonna lose anyway?
Oh I've imagined one hundred ways

Some are just no good
Some will let it just fade
Some are misunderstood
We'll just have to wait, 'cause

All of the greatest
Greatest of all
Were chasing their fading star
Who'll be the latest
The latest to fall?
We're marching into the dark

Oh Heaven knows where we are
Chasing the fading stars
Heaven knows where we are
Motioning to the dark

Some are better than good
And greater than great
Some are misunderstood
They get told to wait
Some are just no good
Some will let it just fade
Some are misunderstood
We'll just have to wait, 'cause

All of the greatest
Greatest of all
Were chasing their fading star
Wanna know who
Who'll be the latest
The latest to fall?
We're marching into the dark
I wanna go marching into the dark
All of the greatest
Greatest of all
Were chasing their fading star
Were chasing their fading star
Who'll be the latest
Latest to fall?
Marching into the dark

John Legend Marching Into The Dark Comments
  1. forrest cormier

    Oh John what have you done? Jesus will always be here for you, no matter the weight. But if you wait, it might be too late.

  2. Loralye2

    This song SUCKS just like the lyrics. I’m a year late but Q sent me! I hope you and Chrissy find GOD before it’s too late, if it’s not already. I believe your soul can be redeemed if you haven’t committed the abominable sin which is to serve SATAN after KNOWING the ONE TRUE GOD!

  3. B Sim

    There a puppets and there are puppet masters. which is John?




    "What can you buy with the ultimate sacrifice?"
    - - Committing a truly evil act grants a reward(stardom?)


    "If you don't believe in the afterlife?"
    - - Evil deeds done have no repercussions


    "All of the greatest
    Greatest of all
    Were chasing their fading star
    Who'll be the latest
    The latest to fall?
    We're marching into the dark"
    - - All the biggest stars have made the "ultimate sacrifice" to buy their stardom




    John is telling us how Hollywood really works. You can't get to the top without committing to the darkness

  4. Richard Orahood

    so when will the ruling class and their idol puppets go down you ask ? not for us to worry. Only the Lord can truly judge us and they all will eventually face their maker and have to answer for everything. focus on your personal
    walk with God before its too late. blessings to all......

  32. Catherine Bridges

    You Some How Believe That Those Without Fame And Fortune Are Miserable. They Are Actually Some Of The Happiest People I Know. They Take Pleasure In The Smallest Of Things And In All The Beauty Around Them. They Feel Pride In A Good Days Work And An Honest Living. They Answer To Only One God That Lets Them Know He Is Waiting For Them With Open Arms. If They Only Ask Him To A Believe.

    #Qanon WE KNOW!

    Robin Mead

    Mark Walecka Here from Q too. I don't understand what "we know" means though. Are you saying he still supports Clinton, or is into child trafficing, based on some bunk Clinton is feeding him? After what the Clintons and the CF did in Haiti I'd think Legend would have caught on and been sickened and furious.

    All that money he helped to raise for Haiti, only to get stabbed in the back by the Clintons. There's no misunderstanding that. The Clintons have destroyed so many talented people by taking their deepest, best and purest intentions (in this case, helping the Haitians), promising to follow through and then doing the opposite. Some are even snuffed for it.

    Mark Walecka

    They never thought she'd lose

    Mark Walecka

    I also agree that we can't just say they're involved with the trafficking aspect just by being photographed with the Clinton's on multiple occasions. Maybe the blackmail is so strong, they have no choice. Either way, I believe we will find out who is good or evil in the end

    Robin Mead

    Mark Walecka I believe John Legend's heart is in the right place, unless his lyrics are personna.

    Clinton's thang has always been about keeping people stupid, in poverty and subject to the state, while she talks out of the other side of her mouth. She gets hold of a good men and women like this (people who see the abject poverty in places like Haiti and Africa - which has always been held down and was basically what WWI and WWII were about) and then stands behind their good names and their talent, and then she screws them most every time. She uses them.

  46. benoha

    Symbolism will be their downfall

    Don Lalo

    Album cover indicates he's already in the dark. You're correct! Symbolism will be there downfall! Q

  47. American Wife

    Wow these lyrics are disgusting- so is JL and his 🍕 wife

    Fannie Hughes

    What is the purpose of brewing negativity? Do you know them personally to make such a bold statement?

    [Verse 1]
    What can you buy with the ultimate sacrifice
    If you don't believe in the afterlife?
    Oh I still grieve rememberin' what you were like
    Now what good is a dream when the dreamer dies?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Some are better than good
    Greater than great
    Some are misunderstood
    And they get told to wait by

    [Chorus]
    All of the greatest
    The greatest of all
    We're chasing their fading star
    Who'll be the latest
    The latest to fall?
    We're marching into the dark

    [Verse 2]
    What if your life was just in the day to day
    And after you're gone the world stays the same?
    Why should you love what you're gonna lose anyway?
    Oh I've imagined one hundred ways

    [Bridge]
    Oh Heaven knows where we are
    Chasing the fading stars
    Heaven knows where we are
    Motioning to the dark

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Some are better than good
    And greater than great
    Some are misunderstood
    They get told to wait
    Some are just no good
    Some will let it just fade
    Some are misunderstood
    We'll just have to wait, 'cause

    [Chorus]
    All of the greatest
    The greatest of all
    Were chasing their fading star
    Wanna know who
    Who'll be the latest
    The latest to fall?
    We're marching into the dark
    I wanna go marching into the dark
    All of the greatest
    The greatest of all
    Were chasing their fading star
    Were chasing their fading star
    Who'll be the latest
    Latest to fall?
    Marching into the dark

  61. asdfmatt81

    I'm afraid of the dark tho jk

  62. knack 2

    Ehh. This and penthouse are the only songs i liked from this album. YOU GOTTA STEP IT UP JOHN. love all of your other albums btw

    Tahir Noel

    WHO KILLED MY POOL nah darkness and light is great, overload is short but good, love me now grew on me, especially his run in the second verse " i don't neeed you..." and his song to Luna is definitely different for him. one other song he has where his vocals and another girls going back and forth too. not his strongest album though

    Joshua Chuks

    Tahir Noel this album strong af tho. You can say it doesn't suit your tastes, but the album is full over great songs. The only iffy one is the song he wrote for his daughter, which still isn't terrible.

    Tahir Noel

    Joshua Chuks I agree that it is a strong just not HIS best album. but it keeps getting better everytime I listen to it though. though I know better is bash to basics with him, I think that is the weakest song, as it kind of falls out of place with the rest of the album beat wise. then again as I'm saying it, I want to take it back. I actually live the Luna song. I think the production is the best part of the album though, so shout outs to the Production team

    Tahir Noel

    Joshua Chuks this is by far my favorite song now though

    reNINTENDO

    Incidentally "I Know Better" and "Darkness and Light" are my favorites off the album. Music is often really subjective, and I think people need to realize not liking something isn't the same as it being bad (not even just for music). Hell, this is one of my least favorite songs off the album, but just because I didn't like it as much as other people did doesn't mean I think it's bad. John is objectively an excellent musician and song writer, but with those tools you can make a lot of different things. And none of those things will jive with everyone.

    john dejame decirte que hoy escuche, tus canciones, y eres otro nivel, sigue adelante, y sigue cantando esas canciones, muy hermosas, esas canciones que dan un ambiente de romanticismo, bendiciones
