Signal Black Spot

God love you now you are
Strung out between the stars
Heeded the siren when she called.
What’s all to the good you say
To take your friends away
A man lying bleeding in the road
One small light fading away that should have grown

While we still have tears to shed
Take someone else instead
Beat on another guy
So we can sit around and wonder why we still can’t reach
A single black spot

My best days may be gone
But I’d exchange for none
Not with the fire that’s in me now.
I know the iceberg song,
I know her sighs and moans
And she’d be no good friend to me,
I won’t go down easy at the end

Now hear the angels sing
Beyond imagining
The cost of what you never thought
Here comes a rider
After dark
