"Black On Black II" as written by Ann Wilson, Nancy Lamoureaux Wilson and Kit Hain....
Daddy's little soldier boy
Mama's little pride and joy
Both hands on her apron strings
"Don't you touch that dirty thing"
A warning signal from above
Inspection with a clean white glove
They say that opposites attract
like right and wrong
Black on black

Like pleasure and a little pain
The sacred and profane
Ice and fire counteract like black on black
The oldest story known to man
The willing sacrificial lamb
Behind the light a shadow falls
The code of silence shakes the walls
A whisper to a silent scream
The power is so frightening
They say that opposites attract
like right and wrong
Black on black

Like pleasure and a little pain
The sacred and profane
Ice and fire counteract just like black on black
A warning signal from above
Inspection with a clean white glove
They say that opposites attract
like right and wrong
Black on black

Some things seem so sacred
Like a loaded question the power of suggestion
Like the face of danger the kindness of a stranger
Like a Judas Kiss like pleasure and a little pain
Immaculate seduction absolute corruption
Ice and fire counteract no turning back
like black on black
Black on black.
Black on black

Like pleasure and a little pain
The sacred and profane
Ice and fire counteract like black on black
Like pleasure and a little pain
The sacred and profane
Ice and fire counteract just like black on black
Black
A little pain
Just like black on black
Black
Black on black
Black on black
Black on black

    General CommentReally freaky song, I'd like to see someone try and figure out what it all means, I sure as hell have no idea where to begin, seems a little religeous. She sings it just right, hard and sounding angry. I really don't know what else to say about such a song.

    General CommentSeems like its about sex to me. I think the song is about a girl who has this bad reputation, and there's this boy who is rich and part of the high life sort of thing, but they have this sort of secret sexual encounter, or something like that.

    General CommentThe song is titled Black on Black II because there is also a Black on Black I. Lisa Dalbello wrote Black on Black I and is credited on Black on Black II. The songs main theme seems to be about the power, seduction and corruption of religious belief's and how they can be a paradox and symbiotic at the same time. Opposites attract and they also help give definition to each other. Right and wrong, fire and ice, pleasure and pain. But they once they become too close together they can be harder to define like laying black on black. The mother is an almost overbearing pious figure, but there is also a very sexual hidden nature to her. There is another possible interpretation.... Mother is an overbearing pious in public, admonishing daddy's little soldier boy not to touch himself, yet he witnesses mommy doing some very naughty things in private when she thinks no one is looking.
