"Black Refuge" as written by and Elias Araya Jose Gonzalez....
Another ending on your story
Now I'll have to speak to you from a distance
Because I tend to forget my duty
When I get to close to your resistance
Say what you have to say
I know it isn't you anyway
Use all the colours that you want to
I'll use black
I'll use black

I tend to forget my duty
But this time I'll use black
I tend to forget my duty
But this time I'll use black
But this time I'll use black

This time I'll use black
This time I'll use black

I'll use black
I'll use black

    General Commentif anything can be said about Junip's latest recordings... they leave A LOT of room for interpretation. I appreciate that even though it can be frustrating to have to rely solely on my own experiences to give the songs meaning.

    In its most broad and general interpretation, I would say this song is about a relationship between two people. One person chooses to "take the high road" by giving excuses and maintaining innocence while the other (the voice) chooses to be more realist and cynical... recognizing that he is tired of the BS "Because I tend to forget my duty when I get to close to your resistance "... ultimately, this song is a declaration that he is done trying to look at the relationship as something hopeful... Hence the "Black Refuge"
