Flotsam And Jetsam - Black Cloud lyrics

I've never screwed anyone that didn't fuck me
And I don't climb the branch of another man's tree
I try not to talk behind the back
Never enter into thought if you're Jew or black
Always pay what I owe, owe what I pay
Doesn't matter if you're female, Muslim or gay
If you're cool to me, I'll be cool to you
And if you lie to me, I won't be straight with you
I never win the lottery, never catch a break
When I get money back you bet it's a mistake
When I gamble I should just throw it away
I take another hit but know I should've stayed
The green light goes to start the race
But the helmet falls down to cover my face
I spread my wings and I'm ready to fly
And the wind and thunder clouds cover the sky

Why does all the crap come back on me
When does the barrage of bad luck cease
How long can the black cloud follow me
How much of this can I take

Why does the black cloud follow me
Why does the black cloud follow me
Black cloud follow

When I beat you I was just returning serve
I climbed the ladder once when I had nerve
Run for my life but stop to tie my shoe
When I raped you I was just taming the shrew
There's a paycheck in my name I see
But I've got no acceptable form of I.D.
There's a wall at the end of a broken path
Add two and two together but beware of the math

There's a place on earth where I feel safe
But I've never been able to find that place
When I'm high I think I've got it figured out
But my performance is filled with an aching doubt
There's a feel in the air that I'm going to win
But the air up here is extremely thin
There's a storm cloud chasing me wherever I go
And the only people helping me keep telling me no

Why does all the crap come back on me
When does the barrage of bad luck cease
How long can the black cloud follow me
How much of this can I take

Why does the black cloud follow me
Why does the black cloud follow me
Black cloud follow
