"Black Again" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Scott Richard Weiland and Eric Kretz....
When you're fed up and lonely
And nothing else seems to matter really

I'll be here waiting for the
Black cloud to leave you
I'll be here to hold your hand
When you're tired and lonely

She can't eat
She can't sleep
She's not well (she's lonely again)
She can't breathe
She's in bed
She's in hell

She can't eat
She can't sleep
She's not well (she's lonely again)
She can't breathe
She's in bed
She's in hell

But she'll never really be alone
As long as I'm beside her

Hold your breath underwater
And know you'll rise to the surface slowly

Think of me as a ship that might hold you
Carry you to the shore
When you're tired and lonely

She can't eat
She can't sleep
She's not well (she's lonely again)
She can't breathe
She's in bed
She's in hell

But she'll never really be alone
As long as I'm beside her

She can't eat
She can't sleep
She's not well (she's lonely again)
She can't breathe
She's in bed
She's in hell

But she'll never really be alone
As long as I'm beside her

    General Comment... Oh, amazing! This is arguably my favorite song by our darling Stone Temple Pilots. The words are romantic, yet they make your heart feel rather heavy.

    General CommentProbably my favorite song on Shangrr-La Dee Da.

    It's gotta be about Mary, and how Scott reached out to her in the midst of all of her personal problems.

    Like Scott, she was bipolar and addicted to drugs and alcohol.

    General Commentthis song is about scott weiland getting his skin pigment changed back to black from white, hence the name black again.

    Now he can go back to doin drive-bys and other nigger stuff.

    General Commentthis song is like my third favorite STP song... i just love the entire Shangri la dee da album.... you think your hearing like just some poppy-like song but its really like this super dysfunctional song with heroin references and overall the album is just ear candy... shangri la dee da is their best fucking album period
