Liner Notes: 

Thought I'd write about a shady character - a black knight being told off by someone he has used/abused in the past.

The first few bars weren't meant to be in the recording but they sort of fit so I've left them in.

Lyrics: 

Black Knight

Your’e a dark horse
Sowing confusion
Never a direct line
You love an illusion

You create havoc
Across the board
You’re built to attack
Though you haven’t a sword

Well I’m making my move and
Just so you know
I won’t be your pawn
Anymore

Black Knight
Get ready for
The endgame

I said you’re a dark horse
Riding up and down
Creating destruction
All around

Jumping overs others
The hopeless, the stranded
All taken out
From where you landed

Well I’m making my move and
Just so you know
I won’t be your pawn
Anymore

You’re a dark horse
Riding up and down
Creating destruction
All around

This feels so ominous and threatening, lots of great tension in that piano part that feeds into the vocal line. Great skirmish!

This is really brilliant! Clever and compelling. I love the tension and darkness you create. Love the jazzy piano and wonderful vocals.

Nice analogy of love being a game of chess. A real groove/swing in the piano. Vocals are foreboding in getting the message across - a fine skirmish piece

Cool sensitivity in the vocals as well as great chord progressions and riffing around the centre key. Nice.job! Smile

Yes ominous is a good word musically. Very clever concept and an excellent lyric. Really nice !
