The Black Market

Rise Against


A currency of heartache and sorrow
The air we breathe is stale with mold
To shadows we are slaves digging deeper every day
When emptiness is growing so old

Headlamps light the tunnels we wander
They shimmer and they dance on the walls
We're lost inside this caves
As the chances of escape
Grow slimmer till there's no chance at all

This ink it travels from the page
Up my hand into my veins
Choking on the stories I've told
If there are words here left to say
I just wanna let you know

I'm falling on my knees right now
I'm covered in the mess I've made
This colours used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me

I've been searching for a remedy
When all along its been in front of me
I need you here
I need you now
Right now!

We traffic in the blackest of markets
Trade misery like diamonds in gold
The angs that we exchange
For applause or petty praise
Its finally now taking its toll

But there's a world above the ground
A life that we can lead
Washing of the dirt from our clothes
I dont wanna live without
I just wanna let you know

I'm falling on my knees right now
I'm covered in the mess I've made
This colours used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me

I've been searching for a remedy
When all along its been in front of me
I need you here
I need you now
Right now!

Right now!
Oh!

(Black stains) they mark me like a letter
(Don't fade) cracking under the pressure
(Black stains) nothing stays gold

There's a world above the ground
A life that we can lead
But we're lost deep down on these holes
And I've seen the way out
I just wanna let you know

I'm falling on my knees right now
I'm covered in the mess I've made
This colours used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me

I've been searching for a remedy
All along its been in front of me
Your voice it washes the stains away

Oh, oh, oh,oh, oh!
