I am amused
You seem to love me
But be reserved
Before you huff me

I'm used to winners
I need the fame
And if you touched me
You'd be my shame

Your childish dreams are all in vain
To me your kind is all the same

A starlit sky
Of black and silver is my core
My last goodbye
Makes you want me even more
For silver is my fame
Black is my name

I am a queen
And if you creep
I'll push my blade
Still-water-deep

I am a dream
A fairy-tale
Your endless quest
Your holy grail

Thanks so much for your confusion
I will be your lost illusion

Deep inside
The silver shines as black as can be
My disguise
The wolf among the sheep, you want me
To me your kind is all the same
To me your kind is all the same

    General Comment:No comments on this song!? Ahh, I love it! First the sound of it, I first i ran across some Middle Eastern tune and I was rather curious about it. I listened to it and now I'm addicted to this band. they are so unique and I adore the singer's voice.

    Ha I tihnk this song is about how power can have both a black and silver side, the black is the darker side and the silver is the fame they crave. Power makes them think everyone else is lower and such. They also believe they should be worshiped or at least admired by all others.I love the song even if the meaning is a bit harsh.

    General Comment:I think that this is sort of a similar to the song emotional man where she is condescending towards men who love her for her fame and considers them lower or less than her because desire her without knowing who she is.

    They are intrigued by her "silver" fame (like a crow attracted to sparkles) but they don't even know her well enough to consider that she is a different person than the famous person/icon.
