At last alone, his fire's dying
Burned another day
Now to pretend
And make up an ending
Somewhere far away

He reached for a book all bound in leather
Something that he knows he's never read
And the first page says beware you've found the answer
The next one says I wish that you were dead!

Don't go on, put it back
You're reading from the Bible Black!

What's this word I see
Who are you and who are me
Maybe I just stumbled in the dark

I must have been out cold
But the way the story's told
They found me lying naked in the rain... yeah

Let me go I've seen a vision
But the line has left me blind
Take me back
I must have the Bible Black!

Well here I go again
From the start to the end
I wish I could remember what I've done

Now here's another spell
It could take me straight to hell
And I feel I'm getting closer to my home

Let me go I've found addiction
And it makes me feel alive
Take me back
I must have the Bible Black!

(Great Guitar Solo)

He locks himself away and tastes the silence
Hungry for another bite of wrong
And just the words "oh Lord please take me with you"
Took him to a place we don't belong

Let him go!
He can't come back
He's reading from the Bible Black!

So if your fire's dying,
Then what's the use of trying?
I may know another place that you can go

It's hiding in the pages
But you may not come back
You're reading from the Bible Blaaaaack!

    Faust, from goethe. That would be the inspiration source for such a song.

    This was a recurring theme on rjd's songwriting.

    The gates of babylon, from rainbow.
    Don't talk to strangers, from dio.
    Too late, from black sabbath.

    All those songs orbit about the same notion.
    Someone who gets involved in the occult ends up in trouble.
