"Theatre" as written by and Neil Tennant Chris Lowe....
I see the world in a swirl of hues
But my favorite color is shame

Tonight the sky is painted
Tonight the sky is painted melancholy
And the wind sings songs as if it would lament
Some tragedy on the far side of the world

We're in the deep pockets of my mind
Where I lust after blood and pain

Tonight the sky is painted
Tonight the sky is painted melancholy
And the wind sings songs as if it would lament
Some tradgedy on the far side of the world

I am I and the world is a woman
From who I must take take take
In an act of lust, no, in an act of pride
And I am damned, but can I be saved?
But can I be saved, saved

Tonight the sky is painted
Tonight the sky is painted
Tonight the sky is painted (tonight the sky is)
Melancholy and the wind sings songs as if it would lament
Some tragedy on the far side of the world

And the wind sings songs as if it would lament
Some tragedy on the far side of the world

    General CommentIt probably means something to the effect that the singer is probably in a shameful, sad mood because of a wrong act he did...and so, you know how you always see everything horrible when your not in a good mood? Well, I think he's just conveying his emotions into his surroundings...if you look really deeply into this song i bet you could figure out what he did bad....but I think thats besides the point....anyways, great song....so catchy....

    General CommentActually this song (and the whole cd) is referring to the city of Pompeii. When the "volcano" blew and killed thousands by covering them in ash. That's what they're referring to by "tonight the sky is painted black."
