Richard And Mimi Farina – Children Of Darkness (1965)

NOW IS THE TIME … ” Children of Darkness “…
My heroes Richard and Mimi Farina from their album REFLECTIONS IN A CRYSTAL WIND on Vanguard Records in 1965. Richard died in a tragic motorcycle accident on Mimi’s birthday after publishing his book… BEEN DOWN SO LONG, IT LOOKS LIKE UP TO ME.

You can hear them on our music website musicians4childrenwithlyme.com starting May 21. May is LYME Awareness Month, and you can listen to great music, read articles, and Donate directly to non-profit foundations helping Kids with LYME infection and their families. 

All donations go to them, not us. Mimi was a special friend to me.

LYME is tough for us adults… imagine what it is like for Kids. Come On… give us a listen…

Lyrics

Now is the time for your loving, dear
And the time for your company
Now when the light of reason fails
And fires burn on the sea
Now in this age of confusion
I have need for your company

For I am a wild and a lonely child
And the son of an angry man
And now with the high wars raging
I would offer you my hand
For we are the children of darkness
And the prey of a foul command

It’s once I was free to go roaming in
The wind of the springtime mind
And once the clouds I sailed upon
Were sweet as lilac wine
Then why have the breezes of summer, dear
Enlaced with a grim design?

And where was the will of my father
When he raised his sword on high?
And where was my mother’s wailing
When our flags were justified?
And where will we take our pleasures
When our bodies have been denied?

So now is the time for your loving, dear
And the time for your company
Now when the light of reason fails
And fires burn on the sea
Now in this age of confusion
I have need for your company
