about

Black Queen Speaks Houston, Texas

Formed in Houston, TX but hailing from across the country, Black Queen Speaks came together for a common love of the almighty groove. Their sound is an amalgamation of blues, hard rock, grunge, 70’s funk, dance, and soul peppered with flourishes of 90’s hip hop. In short, Black Queen Speaks can best be described as if Jane’s Addiction and Soundgarden got their asses kicked by James Brown. ... more

Baby baby I was plugging my light into you,
for lately too long to remember.
And baby baby I was hearing you call me a user,
but throughout these dog days I've delivered.

And baby baby I was thinking of you,
and a time when a mood had you looking so good,
baby baby if you come back for more,
I would open the door and I would let you on in, yeah.

Baby baby I was plugging my light into you,
but you were way too codependent,
And baby baby I was hearing you call me a user,
but throughout these dog days I've delivered.

And baby baby I was thinking of you,
and a time when a mood had you looking so good,
baby baby if you come back for more,
I would open the door and I would let you on in, yeah.

Such a shame, she was a fine woman.
Such a shame, she was a fine woman.
but for lately too long to remember,
through dog days I've delivered,
you see me half a step up,
believe me, I've been better.

Dog days, I've delivered
Dog days, I've delivered
Dog days, I've delivered,
and withered, and withered, and withered, and withered
Baby baby I was thinking of you,
and a time when a mood had you looking so good,
baby baby if you come back for more,
I would open the door and I would let you on in, yeah.

Said the days been hard so I’ll keep this soft
And you look so tired won’t you take that off
Yeah you lit your fire and you paid the cost
Is the war you wage worth the loss?

CHORUS
Danger, love is a critical stranger, mami
I see you looking for a savior
But would you give up all your ancient anger for it?

This is your heart again, your sleeping heart again
We want your life, we want your mind we want your start again
This is the truth of it, the living proof of it
We want your high, we want your high, what we won’t do for it

CHORUS

This is your heart again, heart again won’t you start again
You go open for a moment but then you hard again
This is the truth of it, truth of it living proof of it
You go rocketing in a rocket hit the roof again

I said, Danger, love is a critical stranger, mami
I see you looking for a sainted savior but your behavior
Seems like you don’t wanna be saved

That’s enough for now we gon let you mend
Til you least suspect this is not the end
I started your panic attack and I’ll do it again
Til the lights come on in you, my friend.
Track Name: Tizon

Hello my friend I heard your soul's for sale,
trade it to me, I'll make you free.
I'm headed now to Shangri-La myself,
and I have heard there's extra seats.
I think we will go and be eaten by a whale,
let something great, take you deep.
For you to find out that you are yourself the one,
you got to force yourself to feel.

Prechorus
And I believe you got some style,
I believe you fit the profile,
I believe that you were never one to lie down,
you were never one to lie down...

Chorus
So won't you set out now with me
through a thousand setting sun.
Give up all your needs,
cuz this is love, the only one.
But if you don't know the words
to any hopeful living song
then you my rowdy friends can't come along.

Oh no my friend oh please do not despair,
such is faith, go blind to see.
Eventually we'll head on up for air,
and oh how changed, you will be.
I think that the best part's when we fly into the sun,
it only burns what isn't real.
For you to find out that you are yourself the one,
you've got to force yourself to feel.

PRECHORUS

CHORUS

I believe you got some style.
I believe you fit the profile.
I believe you walk the mile.
I believe.

CHORUS…
…then you my rowdy friends can be rebels just pretend
And only seem to not be dead so carry on.
Track Name: Conquistador
Conquistador

Please forgive me, mama
Please forgive me, yeah
Please forgive me, mama
This is your lover

Whoever made it the way it was, the way before, it’s over now, the past is past
Whoever said let’s just put this down and not look back, get over it, that would be a blast

PRECHORUS
But your dreams, are they nice dreams, are they nice dreams or screams
Yes your dreams, are they nice dreams, are they nice dreams

CHORUS
This is your lover
Strong enough to take one for the team
This is your lover
Please, forgive me, and bring me my love again

Whoever made it the way it was a little bit
Is at who we mad a little bit
But to who we sadly cannot be admitting it
But it’s leaks like these that are peace to my soul
And I seem like a freak but I’m trying to be whole

PRECHORUS…
…do you long for anyone?
Are they nice dreams, are they nice dreams or screams
Do you grieve for anyone?
Are they nice dreams, are they nice dreams

CHORUS

And bring me my love again…

The past is past and time is past and time is fast can I come back,
bring me my love again
The past is past and time is past can I come back,
Bring me my love again (times 2)
Track Name: Son
Son

I am the son of the devil, I am
Said, the son of the devil, I am
And my father’s hunting for me
But he can’t ride as fast as I can ride
He had such high hopes for me
But I let my good grades slide.

I am the son of the devil, I am
Said, the son of the devil, I am
And my father took my car keys
I did not sweep the yard
And I won’t lead his armies
Cuz you’d be the enemy

CHORUS
I was only born to destroy you (times 3)
I am made of hate
but I’m fighting it for you.

I am the son of the devil, I am
Said, the son of the devil, I am
And even if your sign is hopeless
Oh please don’t lose your focus
Just know this antidote is
You can be anything.

CHORUS….for you,

I was only born to destroy,
Destroy you, destroy you,
I am made of hate
And I’m fighting it.

This is a song of hope for those encased in sin
There is a love I know that hears and helps you win
And though this song of hope is dark I hope you look past the outer skin
There is a love I know that hears and helps you win
This is a song of hope
Track Name: Danger Boy
Danger Boy

Danger Boy, you been, on your own, you been, calling for relief so long you think that they’d send someone

PRECHORUS 1
Keep a lookout for danger, Danger Boy
Keep a lookout for danger (times 2)

PRECHORUS 2
And now your peepers got no time to get life in their way
And so you sleeping wide awake with a knife in your hand
While other dreamers tucked in tight in their beds far away
Oh you screaming for your life in a nightmare instead cuz you fraid, cuz you fraid

CHORUS
I said the morning lights will come
Keep on pushing harder and you will make it through the slaughter
Said the morning lights will come
Taking love for granted this is the reason why you panic
Said the morning lights will come
Keep on keeping on
I said love is the way
Carry the flame
Bad things can do you no harm,

Danger Boy, you been oh so scared to be your self now,
Oh so scared they’ll beat you down now
Oh so scared to be yourself loud

PRECHROUS 1
PRECHORUS 2
CHORUS
Track Name: KFC
KFC

Girl he said he love me and he telling the truth
Girl he said he love me I’m the one that he choose
Some days are so mellow saying hello to you
He start seeing read and I am the fool singing the blues

Is there anymore room in my heart?
Naivete’s lead me here but I’ve grown.
If he thinks me is gon live this way, oh no
If he thinks me is gon live this way, oh no.

PRECHORUS
I’m not walking with this gun to my head, yeah. (times 4)

CHORUS
You said that you wanted me, well I can take you there.
And now you won’t let me breathe and I am breaking here.
You don’t have much to say, all you can say to me,
Is where the f!$%’s my fried chicken I just got in the door
My feet so tired why you starting the war.
The beat down went right there at the top of the stair
And nobody give a fuck about me.

PRECHORUS

CHORUS

First with the head and then with heart,
Til death do us part, singing I love you babe (times 2)
