We touched the walls of the city streets and
Dead ends plain sadly showed us our ways
Of never asking why

Cast down, it was heaven sent and
To the church, no intent to repent
On my knees, just to cry

Until you travel to that place you can't come back
Where the last painting's gone and all that's left is black

Grey nights he's coming to me and
Someday they'll punish my deeds
And they'll find all the crimes

But then they ask when they gonna see them
Then they gonna ask to feel the ghosts, the walls, the dreams
Well, I've got mine

At last those coming came and they never looked back
With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black

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

Practical, since we had to be and
When they were old they came back to me
And they tried, oh they tried

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
