More correctly it is the far side of the moon. As seen in the photo at this point in it's orbit it is far from dark.

Or this one....
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Side_of_the_Moon
The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

"I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvelous! HaHaHa!"
