Well, you wonder why my desktop background
Why you never see bright colors on my Mac
And why does my crypto-clearance
seem to have somber tone?
Well, there's a reason for the things that I turn on.
I fly the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin' in their headphones
, on the angry side
I wear it for the hackers who've long been doing time,
But are there because they made them up a crime.
Well, we've got a DSL lines
, I do suppose,
We've got jumbo jets
, flash cars
But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,
My desktop background continues to be black.
Aw, I'd love to use a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK.
But until the RIAA yields to my dictionary attack,
Till things are brighter, I'm the man in black.
