2. The Blackness

 

You can walk away so easily

Your nonchalance sparks jealousy

I wish I could be as cold as you

Frozen, unfeeling, dead, and blue

You don’t love, you chase, play the game

I tried to care, tried to warm your flame

It’s meaningless, ridiculous, and tiresome

The pain you feel yet try to numb

 

If music be the food of love

Play on, play on, play on

 

The blackness you feed will swallow you whole

Your addictions only help until you’re low

That black tar, those little pills, the white lady with her gleam

They won’t solve this, you’ll unravel at the seam. 

 

The plights of the rich, the bored, inane rich

You’ll never get over your debutante bitch

Does she care that you’re drowning

As a victim of your own hedonistic floundering

She’s watching the tide pull you in

And I’ll lend my hand for your salvation

I’m sacrificing all I’ve ever known

Just so you don’t go it alone

 

If music be the food of love

Play on, play on, play on

 

The blackness you feed will swallow you whole

Your addictions only help until you’re low

That black tar, those little pills, the white lady with her gleam

They won’t solve this, you’ll unravel at the seam. 

 

Will you remember that I loved you more

When you’re finished settling your scores

Will I be the face you see

When the dust stops settling?

 

The blackness you feed will swallow you whole

Your addictions only help until you’re low

That black tar, those little pills, the white lady with her gleam

They won’t solve this, you’ll unravel at the seam.
