This song is literally about a black beetle. Alex was high when he wrote it...


The black beetle’s in the sky
And your time will pass you by
A darkness within the trees
A haunting familiar breeze
In the setting of the sun
The black beetle he will come
All the demons on the run
A black beetle overcomes

The black beetle
Time to testify
The black beetle
Life will be the price

Take the beetle for a ride
And he will change, change your life
In the shadows standing tall
And you will never ever fall
For the demon’s forever tall
But the time comes for us all

The black beetle
A time to testify
The black beetle
Life will be the price
