  • At last alone, his fire's dying
    Burned another day
    Now to pretend
    And make up an ending
    Somewhere far away

    He reached for a book all bound in leather
    Something that he knows he's never read
    And the first page says beware you've found the answer
    The next one says I wish you were dead!

    Don't go out, put it back
    You're reading from the Bible Black!

    What's this word I see
    Who are you and who are me
    Maybe I just stumbled in the dark

    I must have been out cold
    But the way the story's told
    They found me lying naked in the rain..yeah

    Let me go I've seen a vision?
    But the light has left me blind
    Take me back
    I must have the Bible Black!

    Well here I go again
    From the start to the end
    I wish I could remember what I've done

    Now here's another spell
    It could take me straight to hell
    And I feel I'm getting closer to my home

    Let me go I've found addiction
    And it makes me feel alive
    Take me back
    I must have the Bible Black!

    He locks himself away and tastes the silence
    Hungry for another bite of wrong
    And just the words "oh Lord please take me with you"
    Took him to a place we don't belong

    Let him go!
    He can't come back
    He's reading the Bible Black!

    So if your fine with dying
    And what's the use of trying?
    I may have know another place that you can go

    It's hiding in the pages
    But you may not come back
    You're reading from the Bible Black! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
