RISE AGAINST


The Black Market Lyrics

A currency of heart ache and sorrow
The air we breathe is stale with mold
To shadows we are slaves
Digging deeper every day
But emptiness is growing so old

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

This ink, it travels from the page
Up my hand and to my veins
Choking on those 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 made
These colors used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me
And I've been searching for a remedy
When all along it's 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 and gold
The angst that we exchange for applause and petty praise
Is finally now taking its toll
But there's a world above the ground
A life that we can lead
We're washing off the dirt from our clothes
I don't wanna live without
I just want to let you know

I'm falling on my knees right now
I'm covered in the mess I made
These colors used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me
I‘ve been searching for a remedy
When all along it's been in front of me
I need you here, I need you now
Right now

(Black stains) They mark me like a letter
(Won'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 in these holes
And I've seen the way out
Now I just want to let you now

I'm falling on my knees right now
I'm covered in the mess I made
The colors used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me
I've been searching for the remedy
When all along it's been in front of me
Your voice, it washes the stains away
(Wash the stains away)
