My friend
My friend
You were loyal and true
Until that wretch of a woman
Well, she got to you

My friend
My friend
I been down on my knees
But I won't be begging
No more, begging please

The black spot
The black spot
I never thought I'd be the one giving it to you
The black spot
The black spot
My heart just ain't in it no more

My lover
My lover
We sure had something strong
Until you took our love away
Left before long

My lover
My lover
I been down on my knees
But I won't be begging
No more begging please

The black spot
The black spot
I never thought I'd be the one giving it to you
The black spot
The black spot
My heart just ain't in it no more

You can build up love
Make the foundation strong
But soon the cracks start to show

You can build a love up
As best as you can
But sooner or later, it's going to show

    General CommentThe Black Spot is a pirate thing.
    It's like blackballing someone, or pretty much saying they're dead to you.
    In this song, one's going to a friend because of a woman, and another's going to the singer's lady.
    This CD's about sin, and if I had to guess, I'd say this is wrath.

    My InterpretationHere's one hypothetical interpretation. If the record is about sin, could this perhaps be about adultery? Perhaps the main character's woman left him for his formerly loyal/true friend. Perhaps the black spot is not a disease, or being "dead to someone," but instead the blood spot from a gun shot. A gunshot wound is typically very dark red because it bleeds so profusely, then as it begins to dry, it darkens to black. He says he's "giving it" to the characters in each verse, i.e. delivering the gun shot. He gets the ultimate revenge, making them pay for the sin of adultery.
