I know she'd sell all tomorrow's
For the price of just one today.
And don't tell me she lost it,
'Cause she never had it anyway.
I knew I couldn't make it;
I got lost inside a stream.
I don't know where I'm going
And I don't know where I've been.

Nobody cares anymore.
Least of all me,
I'm trying to be free,
Cause I can see
Black gates of death roam on!
Black gates of death roam on!

She speaks to me in a language
That I don't understand.
Apocolypse about mercy
She offered me her hand.
She smiles when I confused it
And asked her about my dreams.
I refused to sell them
But I'll give up all my steam.

Nobody cares anymore.
Least of all me,
I'm trying to be free,
Cause I can see
Black gates of death roam on!
Black gates of death roam on!

Now all the wives were widows.
Now, all the mortar was glass.
And all the evils doubled
And all the pleasures had
And all the men were heroes
And the horses were made of stone.
A million miles of welcome
But nobody ever come home.

Nobody cares anymore.
Least of all me,
I'm trying to be free,
Cause I can see
Black gates of death roam on!
Black gates of death roam on!

    General CommentI tried to get this as correct as I could, transcribing it by ear from vinyl. I think we need to ask Deke himself what he was singing.
