Black Flag - Black Coffee Lyrics




Who are you with, where have you been
Imagination turns thoughts, reason can't change
Staring at the walls,I think I know what I see
Anger, coffee, feeding me.

Drinking black coffee, black coffee, drinking black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, black coffee, black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, drinking black coffee, drinking black coffee, staring at the...
Stab through my heart, stab through my heart, stab through my heart
But its all in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Just in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Its just in my mind, yeaaaaaaaaa

My heart is pounding, as stare at the wall
Its my turn to be jealous, now I don't stand for it at all
In fact I'm pretty stupid, I'm feeling small
Anger and coffee, feeding me

Drinking black coffee, black coffee, black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, black coffee, black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, drinking black coffee, drinking black coffee, staring at the...
Stab through my heart, stab through my heart, stab through my heart
But its all in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Just in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Its just in my mind

Yeaaaaaaaa
Drinking black coffee, drinking black coffee, drinking black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, black coffee, black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, drinking black coffee, drinking black coffee, staring at the...
Stab through my heart, stab through my heart, stab through my heart
But its all in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Just in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Its just in my mind, yea

If the night goes on, paranoia adultery
Why should I be so stupid, when I can't really see
The other side of the wall, is eating away at me
Anger and Coffee, feeling mean

Drinking black coffee, black coffee, black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, black coffee, black coffee, staring at the wall
Black coffee, drinking black coffee, drinking black coffee, staring at the...
Stab through my heart, stab through my heart, stab through my heart
But its all in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Its just in my mind, mind, mind, mind
Its just in my mind

    he was a punk so makes sence

    ard dermout

    I'm pretty sure the Yeeeeaaa influence comes from Ornette Coleman

  5. William Irving

    I was only into British PuNk when I first heard this. That changed, I went and bought the new "Damaged" album, then it was the Nihilistics, Agent Orange, Dead Kennedys on and on.

  24. antique premium

    Straight black coffee off the french press, sitting in a chair staring at a blank wall. Real talk, I wonder what benefit this has for meditation. Trying this tonight.

  25. Anon Nymous

    "A song about heroin..."? Where do you get that idea? I always thought of it more as a song about paranoia & jealousy, since, no one in Black Flag did heroin. Hell, Henry was practically SXE.

    Glorious 2019 theory

    My exact thoughts

  26. Robert Sailer

    I had a Slip It In T-shirt back in the 80s in highschool. Every time I wore it a history teacher use to make me turn it inside out. So I told him I wasn't going to his class anymore. Best move I ever made. It was all out dated information anyway.

  27. Joey Taylor

    I like my women like i like my coffee


    Bitter

  28. Paul Canis

    Next time anyone asks, "What has Gen X ever done for us?" just cue this up on yer turntable.

  33. Róna Punk

    Dzsrinkablekkafí
    Drink a Black Coffee
    Drink a Black Coffee
    DRINK A BLACK COFFEE!

  34. Julie Curristan

    Song's got a beat you can dance to. Gotta hand it to the writers, Ike and Tina Turner.

  35. Trevor Philips

    Randy Blythe's favorite band

  36. Baron Nick Von Sick !

    Any HC punks recall when the amazing Tear It Up played this in their set during the last year of their active being in 2003? An odd question probably but still sticks out to me, as I can't say I recall a band ever play this Flag track as a cover song. Such a sweet choice too, beats the stereotypical ones anyway

  37. Gabriel Amaya

    I like my women like I like my coffee, incapable of loving me back.

  38. Fat Freddy

    I like heroin and human sweat in my coffee.

  39. Cnad Johnson

    this song plays on a loop in my head when I go binge drinking.

  40. Thaddius Glunt

    It's all in my mind...

  41. cloudear1

    Title song to this album is the shit

  42. Esteban Rincon

    Black Flag...Black Coffee..... _coincidence?_

  43. uberdose

    You people are weird. It's about jealousy. It literally says it. Dude's staying up all night, drinking coffee and running scenarios through his mind while he's waiting for the object of his affection. Also, it's "Anger and coffee feeding me." "Feeling mean" just sounds stupid.

  44. Petran Assunco

    I like my coffee just how I like my flag, black

    Tash

    I like my coffee just how I like my women: unconcious, wet, large cup, and light and creamy.

    Petran Assunco

    @Tash Fine then...

    😂😂

    Jeremy Solloa

    @Tash I could do without the unconscious part...

    whiterthan hitler

    @Jeremy Solloa On the floor?

  45. Jordan Lewis

    I don't drink coffee but I love staring at walls

  46. Greg Mercil

    I always thought the song was about paranoia and anxiety. I can totally relate to this song in that aspect.

  47. Machete Moonlight

    I love Greg Ginn's weird fucked up off key-ish solos. Perfect, and yet satirical of rock, at the same time.

  48. Lindsey McKirdy

    when music was important......

  49. Midnight Marauder

    Black coffee could mean anything from drugs to ignorance of the world, stare at the wall maybe means the see what they want to see or dont see the real situation of the world, u get what in trying to say

  50. Velton Conoley

    One of there best albums!

  51. OrganizedMessOffical

    For all the people arguing what the song is about let the damn song speak for itself to each individual , let it be interpreted you're own way.

  52. Rebel5012

    My favorite black flag song
    I love drinking black ☕

  53. Slow Neutron

    Hmmm...He never has a second cup at home....

  54. Joshua King

    3 cups and this song before work=I wanna rip out a chewed up honeycomb from the gut of a pissed off mama bear!

  55. MirumExMachina

    I like my coffee like my women

    Old, cold, bitter, black and stale

  56. Bartimus Trashwalker

    Take the bukaki take the bukaki

  57. PercyJackson10

    2:24 - 2:39 smoooth transition

  58. acho oraha

    🔥🔥🔥🔥 cool

  59. Sardaukar Levenbrech

    I'll Take My Black Coffee With Arsenic

  60. Arcrombie

    I like to sit in my parent's garden, drink black coffee and smoke.

  61. Armando Zapata

    I think this is the longest Black Flag song and only talks about black coffee.

  62. xXANTHONYXx

    I listen to this every morning while i'm drinking my Black Coffee

  63. john backner

    Real EMERGENCY ROOM MUZIK for REAL MOSH PIT MANIACS!!! This Really me back!

  64. KerayZ

    horrible

  65. Jason Kirkpatrick

    And Chad blew Mike gray his brother. God damn again

  66. Jason Kirkpatrick

    Mike rancheau got a blow job from his brother Derek
    God damn

  67. Jason Kirkpatrick

    Joshua molested his little brother

  68. Paul Caldwell

    It is about drinking black coffee. Caffeine high. Stay up all night stare at the walls. I've known people that do that.

  69. Mr. RJP51

    I like my coffee like I like my women, with a side of fava beans

  70. one H

    I loved those dayss

  71. Nv Johansson

    His name is Henry Rollins and hes the angriest person alive, any questions?

  72. Drew Bannister

    I like my coffee like I like my women, ground up and in the freezer. <3

  73. Laura Gilbert

    "Enjoy your hot bean water I add cream coz I love myself." I used to drink black coffee until I heard someone say that and I haven't turned back, haha. To be honest, it's just not that good. Unless you're really hung over and there's literally nothing else to help you get over your hang over, I could see how a fondness would develop.

    Jet Lyfe

    ^^^ Some people just don't get it..... ^^^

  74. Donno Rooks

    I thought black coffee was referring to the clones of Wall Street that work 9-5 that drink black coffee in the morning. They stare at the wall because their life is meaningless. Black coffee just symbolizes those kinds of people. It's not about heroin tho...

  75. ISABEL DELGADO

    Heroine

  76. DinsdalePiranha67

    I take my coffee black. Like my soul.

  77. zax the reds

    rollins u suk

  78. El Cuento

    ffs, the song has nothing to do with heroin or coffee. It's about inferiority complex and obsessing over a mistress/lover/girlfriend
