Intro: MI LAadd9 MI LAadd9 MI LAadd9 MI LAadd9 Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay MI LA MI Were laid spread out before me as her body once did MI LAadd9 MI LAadd9 All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun MI LA MI Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn
DO MIm Hmmmm, and all I taught her was everything DO MIm Hmmmm, I know she gave me all that she wore RE And now my bitter hands, DO Chafe beneath the clouds MIm Of what was everything RE Oh, the pictures DO Have all been washed in black MIm Tattooed everything
MI LAadd9 MI LAadd9 I take a walk outside I'm surrounded by some kids at play MI LA MI I can feel their laughter so, why do I sear
DO MIm Hmmmm, and twisted thoughts that spin 'round my head, I'm spinning, oh DO MIm I'm spinning, How quick the sun can drop away RE And now my bitter hands DO Cradle broken glass MIm Of what was everything RE All the pictures have DO All been washed in black MIm Tattooed everything RE All the love gone bad DO Turned my world to black RE And tattooed all I see, DO All that I am, MIm All I'll be RE DO MIm RE DO Yeah Uh huh Uh huh MIm I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, RE DO I know you'll be a star in somebody elses sky MIm RE DO But why, why, why can't it be, MIm RE DO Why can't it be mine Strumentale: MIm RE DO MIm RE DO MIm RE DO MIm RE DO

Black è forse il brano più intimo dei Pearl Jam. Tanto personale al punto che il gruppo si è rifiutato di produrne un singolo o tantomeno un videoclip onde preservarne le emozioni in esso raccolte, in barba agli interessi commerciali. Ciò nonostante, pubblicato nell'album di debutto Ten, il brano nel 1992 ha scalato la classifica Rock americana piazzandosi al terzo posto ed è uno dei pezzi storici del gruppo di Seattle.
