I am in the night
I am every part of it
The consumption of its beast 
The deck that it deals
The veins that bleed
The caress of its serpent

I am the night
As it writhes and undulates toward dawn
It moans and cries a symphony of anger
I am its agony as it struggles against the light
And dies with the strike of the Sun God.

Dave's Comments:

If you are a Zeppelin fan and like the Rollins Band, you can't miss with this one. This is a nice cover of the song that preserves the original's musical structure and flavour. Nonetheless, the treatment is uniquely Rollins Band with its excellent musicianship and Rollins' intense vocals. Listening to Rollins perform this song, one might imagine that he wrote it himself: He remains true to the original lyrics while delivering them with the feeling and pace that gives the listener the feeling that he's really into the song's sentiments.

Here's a quote from the disc's packaging that sheds some light on Rollins' feelings about Led Zeppelin: "I saw Led Zeppelin. I had great seats. From a break in the curtain I saw Robert Plant come out and shake his hair. It was at this point that I believed I was actually going to see the band play. Until then, even seated with my ticket stub in my pocket, it seemed to good to be true. Seconds later, the curtain opened. The crowd roared. White lights hit eighteen thousand people like a tidal wave. And then...`Kashmir'. I think I forgot to breathe. It was the single most powerful moment I ever experienced as an audience member at a rock show. The rest of the gig was perfect. 2-plus hours later when they left the stage the audience was drained. It was a complete experience. There is no band playing today that could stand up to them. No way. Forget it." - Henry Rollins
