All On Black

This song is by Alkaline Trio and appears on the album Good Mourning (2003).

I put it all on black
No color you're all dressed in
And a stab in the back
Left you bleeding on the floor

And I'm mourning the death
The recent passing of your insides
I smile in regret
Every time I think of how I spoke to you

I put it all in back
Of my mind where I hold you
I'm just trying to keep track
How far back it really goes

And I'm living in lack
Of the blood sent from the heavens
I'm just trying to relax
As a killer's waiting right outside my door

What's black and white?
What's red all over?
This tired book
This organ donor

Sweet blasphemy, my giving tree
It hasn't rained in years
I bring you this sacrificial offering
Of virgin ears

Leave it to me, I'll remain free
From all the comforts of home
And where that is, I'm pleased as piss to say
I'll never really know

I put 'em all in black
The four walls of my bedroom
And I trimmed them in red
Peeled your picture off the wall

And I'm living in lack
Of the blood sent from your heartbeat
That arrived in your neck
Every time I salivated over you

What's upside down?
What's coated in silver?
This crucifix is
My four leaf clover

Sweet blasphemy, my giving tree
It hasn't rained in years
I bring to you this sacrificial offering
Of virgin ears

Leave it to me, I'll remain free
From all the comforts of home
And where that is, I'm pleased as piss to say
I'll never really know

One of these days it's gonna catch up to you
Throwing looks like those around
And one of these nights, I promise to you
I'll soon be sleeping sound, as soon as I leave town
