Got Live If You Want It


This is about death, but as the illusion it is the song unfolds and Mr. Black turns into Mr. White. Spirits rule!

Stefan Holbek: Bass Mads Fleckner: Drums Ole Boskov: Rhodes and vocal


Hey there you – I’m Mr. Black
It’s been 78 years
But now I’m back
To take you around – one more time
The endless rumble – it seems
I hope you don’t mind

For many eons – I’ve had this job
People protest – please please stop
It can’t be true that I’m next in line
Could it be my neighbour, cause I feel fine
They say give me just one extra year
So many things they didn’t clear

I try to understand - this holding onto life
But hey – that’s the setup
Bye to the house, friends, the wife
No worries my friend
When you’ve gone thru the mill
Memories erased and you’re back at nil

A new life for you
Baby and all
Why go for anytning else
When you can rise and fall
80 years in your new soulcage
Forget the tears and act your age

There may come a day when I’m out of a job
When you’ve seen the scheme and been woken up
When you look me in the eye - I might join the fight
And then change my name to Mr. White!
