LyricsThe Black Market

Rise Against

Last update on: September 20, 2020

A currency of heartache and sorrow The air we breathe is stale with mold To shadows we are slaves

Digging deeper everyday 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 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 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 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 No 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 I've been searching for a remedy And all along its been in front of me I need you here I need you now Right now Right now 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 in these holes And I have seen the way out Now 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 I've been searching for a remedy When all along it's been in front of me Your voice it washed the stains away
