"Daylight" by David Kushner is a song about internal conflict and guilt. The lyrics depict a struggle with sinful desires, symbolized by the "poison from the same vine," which both the singer and another person are partaking in. Despite knowing the harmful consequences, they can't resist their temptations, leading to feelings of guilt and shame. They're trying to hide their sins from the 'daylight' or public view, indicating a fear of judgment or exposure. The repeated line "I love it and I hate it at the same time" emphasizes this inner turmoil between desire and remorse. The plea for mercy suggests a longing for forgiveness and redemption.
