Verse:

In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
And the sun in my disgrace

Verse:

Boiling heat, summer stench
'Neath the black, the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I'll hear you scream again

Chorus:

Black hole sun won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun won't you come?
Won't you come, won't you come?

Verse:

Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind, tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
Sometimes, far too long for snakes

Verse:

In my shoes walking sleep
In my youth, I pray to keep
Heaven send hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Chorus:

Black hole sun won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun won't you come?
Won't you come?

Black hole sun won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun won't you come
