FADING TO BLACK song lyrics by Joel Sattler



I was on fire

red in the night

burning desire

a vulcanite


I rocketed off

out into space

couldn't be caught

a state of grace


Found myself staring at the end of the world

at the black hole shining like the mother of pearl

crossed event horizon and there's no turning back

now everything is fading, fading to black


infinite time

fading to black

stratocaster whine

fading to black


the soul of white light

fading to black

the wrong and the right

fading to black


Our schemes and our dreams

fading to black

a love supreme

fading to black 


happiness and hope

fading to black 

the end of the rope

fading to black 


all our history

fading to black

sexual mystery

fading to black


the end of the day

fading to black

God walking away

fading to black


until our last breath

fading to black

welcoming death

fading to black


fading to black

fading to black

fading to black

black black black
