The Moody Blues (1967): America in 2009 — “Breath deep the gathering gloom; watch lights fade from every room” because “we decide which is right”

Nights in White Satin epilogue, Late Lament: spoken by Graeme Edge of the Moody Blues in their amazing 1967 album, Days of Future Passed

Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day’s useless
Energy spent



Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And
Which is an Illusion

    There is more to it than that.
    Impassioned lovers
    Wrestle as one
    Lonely man cries for
    Love and has none
    New mother picks up and
    suckles her son
    Senior citizens wish
    they were young.
    This goes between the verses you have
