Speed Of Darkness" lyrics. Flogging Molly Lyrics. Bury me in silence For I'll never hear the truth My coffin will be empty Cause you'll never steal my youth. I was born to live beside you But you tried to stop me grow Now I'm living on the run From all this hatred you now love Who said it only rains From the heavens above. The speed of darkness lights our way We set our course for America No bitterness will bite my tongue The speed of darkness has begun

Rather than growing stale, Speed of Darkness shows a band that’s only grown more confident in their style over the years, performing songs like Rise Up and Revolution with a self-assuredness that allows the listener to let them do their thing without worrying about their bona fides, giving them the chance to draw us into their world without ever questioning what. If you’re already familiar with Flogging Molly, then Speed of Darkness isn’t going to disappoint, and if you’re not a fan yet, there’s no better time to jump on the wagon than today.

This album finds Flogging Molly at a crossroads. While Float was their biggest chart hit (#4 on the Billboard 100), it also received criticism of the band losing their hard edge, and that they might be running out of ideas. Well, they found a new idea, and it's a good one- the problems of the US economy. Dave King and his new wife Bridget own a home near Detroit, so it's easy to see where their new influence came from. And there are plenty of points where that works- "Saints and Sinners” and “The Power’s Out” both crackle with accusation, “Revolution” is a call to arms, and even quieter tracks like “Rise Up” and “Prayer for Me In Silence,” work as messages of hope.However, it doesn’t fix the loss of their edge, which dulls the impact of the tougher edged songs. Ryan Hewitt has continued the smoothing out process he started on Float, and it with the success of that album, it makes this one feel like the band is trying for more mainstream success. It doesn’t help that misfires like “Oliver Boy (a 21st Century Breakdown knockoff), “The Cradle of Humankind (an overwrought piano ballad),” and first single “Don’t Shut Us Down (which has no subtlety and sounds like it wants to be a modern rock track) pepper the album. Plus, it’s rather confusing that an album slamming greed is trying so hard to continue Molly’s mainstream success. All in all, this is still stronger then Float and has some good songs, but suffers from the same problems as its predecessor while hammering its one idea into the ground.
