"I Am the Night, Color Me Black" as written by and Michael Dyball Vincent Nudo....
I know where you were born
I know it's you
I'll wait for weeks to find out
That nothing's true
And I'll wait too long

You had it all before
I noticed you
And now your wildest dreams are falling through
So I'll wait

And you'll wait for me
Unlock the door
I want the truth 'cause
If it's exactly what it claims to be then it may just set me free

I know where you were born
I know it's you
Your tiny hands were cold
But I wanted you anyway

Back to the sea
O simple life I've known
Come back to me
And I'll wait

I'll shed this human form and I'll walk away
The night controls me now and that's where I'll stay
And I'll waste away but I'll make sure you don't

    General CommentI think this song has something to do with the war. Not anything to do with whether the war is right or wrong, but chronicling the experiences of what some of the soldiers who had new reltionships before they left might have ended up going through.

    When they were on duty they found out that their wives/girlfriends had an affair and ended up becoming pregnant with someone else's baby.

    Even though these soldiers know that the baby isn't their's they'll take care of it anyway (Your tiny hands were cold, but I wanted you anyway) and they're promising to take care of the baby no matter what happens (and I'll waste away, but I'll make sure you don't).
