Black

  • As the walls are closing in
    And the colors fade to black
    And my eyes are falling fast and deep into me
    And I follow the tracks that lead me down
    And I never follow what's right
    And they wonder sometimes when they see all the
    Sadness and pain that truth brings to light

    'Cause I can't see no reason
    What is blind cannot see
    'Cause I want what is pleasing
    All I take should be free
    What I rob from the innocent ones
    What I'd steal from the womb

    If I cried me a river of all my confessions
    Would I drown in my shallow regret

    As the walls are closing in
    And the colors fade to black
    And my eyes are falling fast and deep into the sea
    (Above line written as "and the night is falling" in album jacket)
    And in darkness all that I can see
    The frightened and the weak
    Are forced to cling to mistakes they know nothing of
    At mercy are the meak

    'Cause I can't see no reason
    What is blind cannot see
    'Cause I want what is pleasing
    All I take should be free
    What I rob from the innocent ones
    What I'd steal from the womb

    If I cried me a river of all my confessions
    Would I drown in my shallow regret
    If I cried me a river of all my confessions
    Would I drown in my shallow regret
    If I cried me a river of all my confessions
    Would I drown in my shallow regret
    If I cried me a river of all my confessions
    Would I drown in my shallow regret
