Bad or a wet dream,
Feelin' so inbetween,
Gun in my pocket an' a target on my head.
Right on the wrong road,
He talks to me through dogs,
Not sure who it is but I know it ain't God.

Feel like they're watchin' me,
Know that they're watchin' me,
C'mon lets go got two tickets to the moon.
Now what are you supposed to do?
When they got their hooks in you?

Do you beleive me?
I was there.
And didja hear it!?
Yeah...

Not my fault, wasn't even there.
Rest of the world, all gone insane.
Can ya hear the dogs barkin' can ya hear the dogs speak?
Seen it on the TV, something gonna break.
Now how am I supposed to breathe,
When there is no air?
And how am I supposed to be!?
When those hooks are pullin' me...
Down.

If you release me,
Won't be there.
If you leave me!!!
I won't care.

I hear black it has no mercy!
Repeating in my head.

In my head....
In my...

From the inside out... talk to me, in, tounges.
The worst... of this... I understand,
That the flies are breeding,
The wounds are bleeding,
There'll be no healing in my house.

From the inside out.
You know I'm not the same!

Repeating in my head
In my head.

    Song MeaningAbout David Berkowitz, aka "Son of Sam" and "44 calibre killer". A serial killer who claimed his neighbor's dog was possessed by a demon and forcing him him to kill. Later he claimed he had not even been at all of the killings and was the victim/scapegoat of a cult he was a member of.


    Coincidentally, the first sentence of SOS's 2nd letter sent to the police before his capture was, "Hello from the gutters of N.Y.C. which are filled with dog manure, vomit, stale wine, urine and blood. Hello from the sewers of N.Y.C. which swallow up these delicacies when they are washed away by the sweeper trucks.

    Obviously SOS had an influence on Overkill who wrote the song/album, "Hello From the Gutter" years before "I Hear Black."
