"Black Lodge" as written by Angelo Badalamenti, John Walter Bush, Scott Ian Rosenfeld, Frank Joseph Bello and Charlie L. Benante....
Worship the ground you barely walk on
You give of yourself but your angels are gone
Deny your body is screaming
But your heart and your soul they're bleeding
Just to fall asleep is a godsend
Until your demons appear again

I am a witness to your demise

Your biggest secret is one you can't keep
Lift up your head if you're only asleep
You try to hold onto reason
Why can't you see that you're leaving?
My love for you knows no distance
But it can't fight your resistance

I am a witness to your demise
I am the one who saw through the lies

Give me the one thing you can't give
Take me to the black lodge where you live

Deny your body is screaming
But your heart and your soul they're bleeding
Just to fall asleep is a godsend
Until your demons appear again

I am a witness to your demise
I am the one who saw through the lies
My love has always been blind

    General Commenti love this song! especially the dark atmosphere..anyway, i think the song is about how we sometimes have secrets that even the person we love most cannot understand due to personal issues such as depression. It can also be how people resist love in fear of being hurt, like they've been before.

    General CommentThis song was inspired by Twin Peaks, although the band claim(s/ed) it was only the music and not the lyrics, which is unusual.

    General CommentThis song sounds to me like it is about a loved one who is getting deeper and deeper into hard drug addiction. "deny your body is screaming" points to heroin because a side effect of heroin addiction is chronic pain that can be described as "your body screaming".
