A pretty little altar boy
Daddy's little pride and joy
Change the water into wine
Touch yourself and you'll go blind

A warning signal from above
A place where sinners fall in love
They say that opposites attract
So very strange:
Black On Black

A virginal trembling hand
A frightened sacrificial lamb
From a blinding light a shadow falls
A code of silence quakes the halls

A whisper to a peircing scream
A love they say is frightening
They say that opposites attract
So very strange:
Black on Black

Change the water into wine
Touch yourself and you'll go blind
They say that opposites attract
So very strange:
Black On Black

I heard him say...I don't want to make you feel guilty
Are you a little short of breath?
Some things are so sacred...

Like a leading question
The power of suggestion
Like the face of danger
Like the kindness of a stranger

Like a Judas Kiss
Like pleasure and a little pain
Like a sinner or a holy man
A virginal trembling hand

Immaculate seduction
Absolute corruption
Like a blasphemous contract
No turning back

Like Black On Black
Black On Black
Black On Black
