I'm lying in my bed
The blanket is warm
This body will never be safe from harm
Still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal
Touch my skin to keep me whole

If only you'd come back to me
If you laid at my side
Wouldn't need no mojo pin
To keep me satisfied

Don't want to weep for you, don't want to know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so

Precious, precious silver and gold and pearls in oyster's flesh
Drop down we two to serve and pray to love
Born again from the rhythm, screaming down from heaven
Ageless, ageless, I'm there in your arms

Don't want to weep for you, I don't want to know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so, so, slow

The welts of your scorn, my love, give me more
Send whips of opinion down my back, give me more
Well it's you I've waited my life to see
It's you I've searched so hard for

Don't want to weep for you, I don't want to know
I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow
The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow
Black beauty I love you so, so,
Black, black, black beauty

    General Comment:Well,
    Im not too sure about this.. its kinda late and my story may be skewed
    When jeff was young He got his first guitar. Later in life that guitar was stolen.
    The guitar was a Black Gibson Les Paul Custom commonly known as a "black beauty" (seriously, look it up on ebay).
    Now. Anyone who knows about gibson two pickup guitars knows that to switch to the rhythm pick up. you switch the toggle knob up...and for the screamin treble pickup...you switch down...Born again (rise up?) from the rhythm screaming down from heaven.
    OK. The Gibson Les Paul was "anointed" in gold and silver with pearl inlay in the neck...Precious, precious silver and gold And pearls in oyster's flesh...

    Look... I know all of this seams far fetched but...IF the rumors of jeff writing this song while all screwed up on herion or whatever the rumors are... maybe this is what was in his subconsious...or maybe he just really missed the guitar (which i belive he found another just like it around the time of the mystery white boy tour) and decided to embelish the thought of having it back...
    OR maybe its just the only Buckley coinsidence that has nothing to do with Death by drowning in a river...

    blah blah blah amazing song Jeff... Happy Birthday
    -love

    General Comment:Ok people this is what Jeff said about Mojo Pin - "Sometimes if somebody you feel you need... the whole universe tells you that you have to have her, you start watching her favorite TV shows all night, you start buying her the things she needs, you start drinking her drinks, you start smoking her bad cigarettes, you start picking up her nuances in her voice, you sleep in safe sometimes the most dangerous thing... this is called Mojo Pin." (Astoria, London, UK, 18/01/95)

    General Comment:A mojo is a magic charm, or an amulet. Derives from "medicine man".
