The Black Angels Haunting At 1300 McKinley

I don’t stay after 6

Oh no, it’s way to dark

“You’re frightened,” she said

“No one can hear us at all”

There was this thought I was sane

Until I met that red dame

“Don’t be worried,”

Is all she said

“Oh baby you whine

Yeah, you cry all the time”

The bed spread is green

You talk, dress, and think

We leave before it gets dark

Walk steady with you in arms

So don’t be around me,

Yeah, I’m gone you see

“In the night I roam

Hey, hey, hey”

I guess I’ll pack my things

“In the night I roam

Hey, hey, hey”

“In the night I roam

Hey, hey, hey”

“In the night I roam

Hey, hey, hey”

The Black Angels Black Isn’t Black

Babe, before I met you,

Blackness everywhere.

Everywhere I look girl,

Blackness everywhere.

Now here you come

All dressed in white.

Climbing up this world,

Like a vine that will not die.

Placed on this planet,

Darkness at the door.

Now black isn’t black anymore.

Girl, when I see you,

I think the world’s OK.

I don’t know how you do it,

But be it as it may.

Now here you come

All dressed in black.

Swallow up this world,

Like a vine that will not die.

Placed on this planet,

Darkness at the door.

Now black isn’t black anymore.

Babe, before I met you,

Blackness everywhere.

Everywhere I look girl,

Blackness everywhere.

Placed on this planet,

Darkness at the door.

Placed on this planet,

Darkness at the door.

Placed on this planet,

Darkness at the door.

Placed on this planet,

Darkness at the door.

The Black Angels Twisted Light

Bite into the apple’s side

Taste the flesh of red and white

Step into the twisted light

Find yourself a second time

Sitting in the pews below

Gazing through the stained glass

Window

Beggars bend

On corners collecting

All our children

Wild and laughing

At the thought of

Leisured confusion

Appear visions

Imploding knowledge

Spin this nova

Into a flourished pool

Bite into the apple’s side

Slip inside your helpless mind

Finally find it’s just a lie

I can see you inside me

Keep it evolving

We’re revolving

Right over our dreams

The wife of noon

Gathered her fleet

Brought them to town

Let them roam free

She stirred her

Emotions quickly

Slitted was her night gown

Pleasing each crowd

Bouncing business

Her jaw is hardened

As night’s kite

Gets tangled in the tree line

The wife of noon

Gets tangled in the tree line

His hearts changing

Eyes on her gems

The Black Angels Indigo Meadow

Lay your hands on my chest girl.

You’ve been a problem

since the moment I met you.

You always cause unreal friction

Put your pale hands

on my face, my love.

Be strong! I wish that you were.

You stand up, act like you love it.

Keep your hands on my chest girl.

Leave your pale face

on my neck, my love.

Always indigo, always indigo.

Always indigo, always indigo.

Everybody knows

you like a hell of a show.

Be gone I wish that you were.

You stand up, don’t act so defeated.

Swing hard! You think that you could.

Beat your bare hands

on my chest, my love.

Be strong! I wish that you were.

Your aching eyes

are not my concern.

Be wrong! I wish that you were.

Keep my pale hands

on your chest, my love.

Always indigo, always indigo.

Always indigo, indigo meadow.

Everybody knows

you like a hell of a show.

Always indigo, always indigo.

Always indigo, indigo meadow.

Everybody knows

you like a hell of a show.

Always indigo, always indigo.

The Black Angels Bad Vibrations

One-Two-Three-Four

Can you tell a wish from a spell?

A hug from a lie?

They both make you feel so gone

We warned you from harm again

You’re beating hearts again

We made love in June,

I heard it from you

You were my best friend

You used my name

Hit hard with harm,

She loves to off you then yawn

Never disarm, you know she loves to be drawn

You’re leaching hard friend

I’m feeling down again

We made love with few,

I took it from you

You were my worst friend,

I felt that way

Braiding her hair,

You can tell her from here

Drink her last tear,

Yeah, you die for your dear

Bad vibes around her,

She’s eating hearts again

We made love in June,

I heard it from you

You were my best friend

You used my name

The Black Angels You’re Mine

Every night I see you girl,

you promise me good things.

But every time I see your face,

you look the other way.

In due time, I’ll find you girl.

I know that you will say,

that every night you dream of me,

and how I make you scream.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

The way you taste at night,

forever paints my mind.

My favorite wine,

I’ll drink you all the time.

I die each night I see you girl,

and wish for you the same

But when you go, I promise you,

I’ll never take the blame.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

All the while this honest urge

is eating me alive.

All the smiles I’ve sacrificed,

you’ve got me hypnotized.

Me and you, I wonder,

what it’s like with you.

Me and you, I wonder,

I believe it’s true.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

All the boys and all the girls

wonder where you are.

Day and night they look for you,

searching near and far.

Never will they find a trace

or have a single clue.

Inside me you’re safe and sound,

I’ll always be with you.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

Yeah you’re mine, you’re mine

all the time.

The Black Angels The First Vietnamese War

You gave a gift to me

In my young age

You sent me overseas

And put the fear in me

And I ask what for now

Why me, why war?

And I ask what for now

Vietnam War?

Spent my time there by the shore

Oh we got off that boat

Charlies everywhere

A lotta killin’ and dyin’

And no one seems to care

I ask what for now

We say hell no

And I ask what for

Why me, why war?

And I spent my time there by the shore

Sixty thousand men died

While you were here

You came into our homes

And you took our kids

And you ask for more now

For this new war

And you ask for more now

Vietnam War

I spent my time there by the shore

The Black Angels You On The Run

Now you on the run son,

Since 1981

You went and did some things,

And spoiled the fun

Yeah, you got the FBI,

They ain’t on your side

Yeah you’re caught foolin’ friend,

With a senator’s wife

Oh I don’t need it,

Well no one does

Just sit on this groove and chew,

As the heat grew and grew;

A life of taking Love,

She fit like a glove

And in due time,

Yeah I’ll be there

Well hello Harmony,

Whatcha doin’ for free?

Yeah get on your knees you freak,

And please please me

A life of solitude,

Yeah, one with me, no you

Life on the run son,

It’s all you knew

And I don’t need it,

No, no one does

The Black Angels Bloodhounds On My Trail

Standing on the front porch, looking left and looking right.

The bloodhounds out to get me, I already feel the bite.

The rules of the road state, to hate those who hate.

Sleeping in wet coffins, frozen warnings melt away.

But you say no to me, just quit saying no to me.

Just stop saying no to me, 500 times a day see.

The billboards on the highway, are the prophets of today.

The roadkill speaks in poems through ads and through campaigns.

The warden has his rifle, and the sniper’s like an owl.

I’m hiding in the tall grass with God and Vernon Howell.

But you say no to me, yes you say no to me.

Just quit saying no to me, 500 times a day see.

The Black Angels Telephone

You never call my name

On the telephone

You never call my name

On the telephone

I just sit and cry

by the telephone

I try and call your phone,

But you’re never home

I try and call your phone,

But you’re never home

You watch me sit outside

You watch me wait and try

And much to my surprise,

I caught you on the number 9

You never called my name

On the telephone

You never call my name (you never call my name)

On the telephone (you never call my name)

You never call my name (you never call my name)

On the telephone (you never call my name)

You make me sick inside (you never call my name)

You make me wanna die (you never call my name)
