Nite falls , and im alone
Skin, yeah chilled me to the bone
You, turned and you ran,
Oh yeah,
Oh slipped, right from my hand

Hey
Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
It don't mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead mans touch
Wisper on a scream
Doesnt't't change a thing
Don't bring you back
Blue on black
Oh yeah, blue on black

Blind, oh, now i see
Truth, lies, and in between
Wrong, can't be undone
Oh slipped, from the tip of
Your tounge

Hey
Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
It don't mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead mans touch
Wisper on a scream
Doesnt't't change a thing
Doesnt't't bring you back, yeah
Blue on black
Oh, blue on black
Oh, yeah

(solo)

Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
It don't mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
Is a dead mans touch
Wisper on a scream
Doesnt't't change a thing
Don't bring you back
Blue on black
Oh yeah, blue on black

Hey
Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
It don't mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
Is a dead mans touch
Wisper on a scream
Doesnt't't change a thing
Doesnt't't bring you back
Blue on black
Oh, blue on black
Oh wha oh, blue on black
Oh, blue on black

    Joker on jack - game of cards - 500. The joker takes the bower jack. Similar to "all along the watch tower" by jimi and bob dylan. Bob was in his conversion from jewish to christian religion and had christ as the "joker", whereas jimi had bob as the joker and thief was elvis presley. Joker on jack, jack is the thief, jimi is the joker. Kws sings tribute to jimi hendrix and bob dylan. That's my take on his song and yet i am bipolar - (like jimi). Many of the other lines appear zennish, and i was wondering if kws has a preference with his faith.

    If you have ever tried to help someone that you dearly loved but despite everything you did, said, or prayed, they commited suicide anyway and you are the one to find them, you find meaning in every line of the song. Night (death) comes and i'm alone. Skin (corpse) chilled me to the bone. The refrain is about regret and powerlessness. Blue can not overpower black, nor tears move a river etc. The regret or guilt is in having only whispered at a scream and it +rin
