"Black Gives Way To Blue" as written by and Jerry Cantrell....
I don't want to feel no more
It's easier to keep falling
Imitations are pale
Emptiness all tomorrows

Haunted by your ghost

Lay down, black gives way to blue
Lay down, I'll remember you

Fading out by design
Consciously avoiding changes
Curtain's drawn, now it's done
Silencing all tomorrows

Forcing a goodbye

Lay down, black gives way to blue
Lay down, I'll remember you

    General Commenti agree with all these interpretations of what 'black gives way to blue' means but something i do disagre with is how blue is necessarily better than black. theyre both very sad colours, blue is less absolute and debatebly less bearable. i agree theres a positivity in that lyric, it says something about the endurance and strength in bearing scars that never heal, but i think theres also the reality that chaos in all its horror is only transposed to melancholy, and flattened out, dulled down. its a different kind of horror, but what is worse.
