Black blood and risky business
High affairs that never see the sun
Cold steel and loaded pistols
Someone's got to see the work gets done

When the black knight moves, you can taste the trouble in the air
You can hear the city talking like it doesn't care
Between the darkness and the light, somebody's will gets done tonight
Before the black knight moves again, you better not be there

Back streets and lonely places
Where you do the kind of things you do
Black cloaks and hidden faces
When we gonna get a look at you?

When the black knight moves, you can feel the darkness coming on
You can hear the city hide itself away till dawn
Between the knife edge and the skin, maybe you'll see the fix go in
Before the black knight moves again, you better be long gone

No words, you keep your silence
People talk in whispers where you are
I hear the sounds of violence
Tell me, brother, where'd you get those scars?

When the black knight moves, you can feel a chill across the board
You can hear the city asking what it's looking for
Between the living and the dead, you just might see a flash of red
Before the black knight moves again, you better see no more

You're a man who knows his business
You can see the master plan.
And you play your own position
You're the instrumental man.
Would the whole world come down crashing
Would the highborn fall as well
If you kick the table over, send the pieces all to Hell?

Dark deeds and secret matters
You can fix it but it doesn't last
Bright flash, the mirror shatters
Who's reflected in the broken glass?

When the black knight moves, you can feel a hand disturb the game
You can hear the city asking for the white pawn's name
When the black knight moves, you can feel a hand disturb the game
You can hear the city asking for the white pawn's name
Between the black squares and the white, there's gonna be a sacrifice tonight
Before the black knight moves again, you better do the same
