Lyrics:
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens ev'ry day
Paint It Black!
Black!
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I want to see the sun blotted out from the world, from the sky

thanks....no one seems to have found this tab, but it's not a very common song, like The Agony Scene's cover....which is VERY similar to this one.
and YES...to anyone who thinks differently, this song is DEFINITELY in Drop C, it's the ONLY way to play the intro right...and The Black Dahlia Murder even said that they use the tuning on some of their songs, and if you listen, you can tell other songs on A Cold-Blooded Epitaph are tuned likewise....I know, they tune two steps down on their later work, but the tone isn't even close to the same as it is when tuned to Drop C.
