Black [William Orbit Mix]
by Sarah McLachlan



As the walls are closing in
And the colors fade to black
As my eyes are falling fast and deep into me
And I follow the tracks that lead me down
But I never follow what's right
And they wonder sometimes when they see all the
Sadness and pain the truth brings to light

`Cause I can't see no reason
What is blind can not see
`Cause I want what is pleasing
All I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb

(As the walls are closing in
And the colors fade to black
As my eyes are falling fast and deep into the sea)
And in darkness all that I can see
The frightened and the weak
Are forced to cling to mistakes they know nothing of
At mercy are the meek

`Cause I can't see no reason
What is blind can not see
`Cause I want what is pleasing
All I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb
