there was something black
painted upon the back of the fairest hand
the hand as pale as the moon lit angle how hides in the promised land
some thing black that coils round like the snake that marked their fait

there’s some thing black within his eyes that all say are sky blue
there’s something black that makes the child back away (and leaves the rest confused)
there’s something black – like the taint of poison that’s hidden in his eyes
there’s some thing black within his soul and only they know why

there’s some thing dark within their dreams
that tell of the fears of the night
there’s some thing dark as satin and silk painted by the twin of the light
they both seem to try to hide their pasts – like they hid away their love in they dark
