Oh no, God damn
I missed the last train
I killed the party again
God damn, God damn

I want to sleep in my bed
I want to clean up my head
Don't want to look this dead
Don't want to feel this dread

I killed the party again
I ruined it for my friends
"Well, you're so silent, Jens"
Well, maybe I am, maybe I am

Now at the central station
No time for being patient
I feel like going home
But at the same time, I don't

Black Cab

And I've heard all those stories
About the black cabs and the way they drive
That if you take a ride with them
You might not come back alive

They might be psycho killers
But tonight I really don't care
So I say turn up the music
Take me home or take me anywhere

Black cab

You don't know anything
So don't ask me questions
You don't know anything
So don't ask me any questions
You don't know anything
So don't ask me questions

Just turn the music up
And keep your mouth shut

Black cab

    General CommentI don´t know if people outside Sweden gets it, but Black Cab is a word-by-word translation of "Svarttaxi". (Svart=Black, Taxi=Cab).

    Svarttaxi/Black Cab means to take an illegal cab home. I think that´s what he means with "they might me psycho killers". That you never know what kind of person driving that "cab" are. Maybe they try to rob/rape you. Have happend a lot of times in Sweden.
