"Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones Cover)" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hm, hm, hm

I wanna see it tainted, tainted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it tainted, tainted, tainted, tainted black
Yeah!

Hm, hm, hm

    General CommentHe's a vampire. He sees a red door of a human heart and destroys it.

    He turns his head away from seeing life and it bothers him to see it, he must look away.

    He witnesses his victim's turn their heads in horror.

    But it's not easy facing up when your whole world is black, so he wants everyone to be black.

    Misery loves company.. But he cannot envision his life on anyone else, so it's better to paint it black and destroy life.

    If he looks at the setting sun, he will die and will feel again.

    Blot the sun from the sky so he can be free
