Black Label Society – Darkest Days lyrics

Divided soul of a troubled man
The final fight
The final need to understand
These tangled roots
Ripped from the ground
Abandonment and worry
Forever to be found

Rain. Rain. Rain
Take this hand of sorrow
Take away my darkest days
Rain. Rain. Rain.

Take away my darkest days
Return me for I feel I'm here to say

For just one moment of peace I long to know
I can see the storm clouds calling me back home
The blood of the hurricane where the water is never still
Life is a loaded gun
Love is a bullet that sometimes kills

    In this song Zakk is referring to the flood that will once again consume the earth. He is so very heartbroken over mankind once again. That's ok though because he is so proud of kemand I know this in my heart. I will be awaiting his call of war as always. What do you think when He means by "love is a gun that some times kills?". He is talking about his return and the ones who have to be destroyed and discarded. He loves them, but will have me erase them. Love you Zakk! Say hello to mother for me, and tell john I will see him when I get home.
