Song Description

While there's a nod to Johnny Cash in the Title, this song is about the OTHER man in black, Hamlet, though it could really be about any of us.

Story Behind the Song

I strangled an alligator until it coughed up the lyrics to this song.

Lyrics

The Man in Black

Everybody feels like a stepson
Every now and then
Everybody wants to go a little crazy
Everybody wants revenge
Everybody wants to play the Dane
Everybody wants to be the man in black
Ghosts come out of walls and whisper in your ear (oooh)
You?re still too slow on the attack

What does it matter? (What does it matter?) What does it mean? (What does it mean?)
Why?ve I got to do the things I?ve got to do?
There?s more going on (more going on) than you could dream
When I?m gonna find the truth?

Everyone?s a little mean to their Momma
When they start to figure things out
Everybody wants a little drama (oooh)
Everybody?s looking for the easy way out

What does it matter? (What does it matter?) What does it mean? (What does it mean?)
Why?ve I got to do the things I?ve got to do?
There?s more going on (more going on) than you could dream
When I?m gonna find the truth?

So you want to play the Dane?
You want to be the man in black
But you?re Polonious, just like the rest of us
End up stabbed in the back

What does it matter? (What does it matter?) What does it mean? (What does it mean?)
Why?ve I got to do the things I?ve got to do?
There?s more going on (more going on) than you could dream
When I?m gonna find the truth?
What does it matter? (What does it matter?) What does it mean? (What does it mean?)
What does it matter? (What does it matter?) What does it mean?
What does it matter? What does it matter?
When I?m gonna find the truth?
