Black Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We touched the walls of the city streets and
Dead ends plain, sadly showed us our ways
Of never asking why
Verse 2
Cast down it was heaven sent and
To the church, no intent to repent on my knees
Just to cry
Verse 3
Until you travel to that place you can't come back
Where the last painting's gone and all that's left is black
Verse 4
Grey nights he's coming to me and
Some day they'll punish my deeds and they'll find
All the crimes
Verse 5
But then they ask when they gonna see them
Then they gonna ask to feel the ghosts, the walls, the dreams
We'll I've got mine
Verse 6
At last those coming came and they never looked back
With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black
Verse 7
Fooled them hoping to seem
Like a slave of evil but the product of greed and
It's not a mass so be honest with me
We can't afford to ignore that I'm the disease
Verse 8
Practical since we had to be and
When they were old they came back to me and they tried
Oh they tried
Verse 9
And when you follow through and wind up on your back
Looking up at those stars in the sky those white clouds have turned it black
