It was always what you said
It would be, and nothing more
Through the smoke screens and the pipe dreams
And the blood on the floor

You say it's black, well it's bound to be black.
You made up your mind, and you see with that.

Baby, if you wanna be right
I will let you be right,
I will let you be right.
You know that the numbers don't lie,
Oh no, the numbers don't lie;
Two wrongs will not make it right.

You said, "One and one and one and one is three."
But I know my lines and my graphs and my math-
Honey, that ain't me.

If you want it, you can have it-
All the lines on the cellar floor.
Don't mean nothing, just a bad dream-
Even if you think it's more.

You say it's black, well it's bound to be black.
You made up your mind, and you see with that.

Baby, if you wanna be right
I will let you be right,
I will let you be right.
You know that the numbers don't lie,
Oh no, the numbers don't lie;
Two wrongs will not make it right.

    General CommentCould possibly be about how she feels that war is unnecessary but this certain person is stubborn and believes that the world must be "black" (hinting of destruction or nothingness). The numbers could mean the amount of people that die or the statistics of war throughout history. That's my thought.

    My OpinionTo me it obviously has to do with issues in a relationship.
