Paint It Black
The Rolling Stones Lyrics


I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby, it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up, when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

"I see a red armor and I want it painted black
No shaders anymore I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by dressed in their hunter clothes
I have to change my subclass until my darkness goes

I see a line of sparrows and they're all painted black
With seraphite and my alkane dust never to come back

I see guardians turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born Thrall it just happens every day"



No Idea For the canal's name

I see a #FF0000 door
And I want it painted #000000
No #000000-#ffffff anymore
I want them to turn #000000
I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my #000000ness goes
I see a line of cars
And they're all painted #000000
With flowers and my love
Both never to come back
I've seen people turn their heads
And quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens everyday
I look inside myself
And see my heart is #000000
I see my #FF0000 door
I must have it painted #000000
Maybe then, I'll fade away
And not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up
When your whole world is #000000
No more will my #008000 sea
Go turn a #000080
I could not foresee this thing
Happening to you
If I look hard enough
Into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me
Before the morning comes
I see a #FF0000 door
And I want it painted #000000
No #000000-#ffffff anymore
I want them to turn #000000
I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my #000000ness goes
I wanna see it painted
Painted #000000
#000035
#36454f
I wanna see the sun
Blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted
Painted #000000, yeah

When I was in college I had to do an essay explaining this song, it's pretty cool.

@Mark Bower II it’s about a Vietnam War veteran having PTSD and everything being numb to him
