Recorded by James Page at Emerald Age Recording, Vista, CA, in February 2017. Produced by James and TSM.


I told you so many pretty things
Words they die, left with nothing
Used to see no future without you
The future dumped me
I wound up black and blue

Black, blue, dark, insane...

Step right up the microphone
All the things that I did wrong
All the ways I done you wrong
I turn around, jump, dive and leave you alone

Once I had a dollar, I turned it into two
Turned it into four once more
Thought I won the moon
Of course I threw it all away
I threw you too
Guess I love nothing
Guess I'll die with nothing too

Black, blue, dark, insane...

(Repeat Chorus)

Playing give and take away
Playing all my life
Give, give, give, give take away
Wrong side of the knife

Black, blue, dark, insane...

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
