Not Dark Yet by gyaban Not Dark Yet by gyaban
Everything photographed and edited by myself.
ETA: Thank you so very much for the DD! It is a great honor, that I appreciate a lot.


Inspired by Bob Dylan's song, "Not Dark Yet".


Shadows are falling and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep, time is running away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal
There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
Behind every beautiful thing there’s been some kind of pain
She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
She put down in writing what was in her mind
I just don’t see why I should even care
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

Well, I’ve been to London and I’ve been to gay Paree
I’ve followed the river and I got to the sea
I’ve been down on the bottom of a world full of lies
I ain’t looking for nothing in anyone’s eyes
Sometimes my burden seems more than I can bear
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

I was born here and I’ll die here against my will
I know it looks like I’m moving, but I’m standing still
Every nerve in my body is so vacant and numb
I can’t even remember what it was I came here to get away from
Don’t even hear a murmur of a prayer
It’s not dark yet, but it’s getting there

What were you thinking when you made this wonderful artpiece? I feel like there's a story which I am too stupid to see... 😅😂

Well it could be a bit long to put precise words on it, but I was inspired by Dylan's song. I was listening to that despaired man's story, knowing that the end is close, even though it's "not there yet". I thought there may be other men with similar stories, for who it is already dark, even though they once were also turned towards hope. Overall, I was rambling around life, death, and choices we have in-between, and imagined this little scene. Thanks for your comment!

what's the point of light when you don't have eyes?

Light can be a relative concept, especially in symbolical work such as this one. Here, their "light" is replaced with "water", as you probably guessed. Thanks for your comment!
