    I wish I could go see a concert period even if it was BOC one....that'd be cool. MY uncle got a chance to see them when they were playing Black Blade. Lucky devil... :?

    What a great song, and one which, alas, BOC never plays on tour anymore. :(

    I had the privilege of seeing it performed twice, by Eric Bloom (and a backing band, not BOC), with MM appearing onstage at one of those gigs. I reallly wish someone had videotaped it. :o

    ummm... would this help?

    Black Blade
    Find this song on Sheet music, CD

    ( - E. Bloom - M. Moorcock - J. Trivers - )

    I have this feeling that my luck is none too good
    This sword here at my side don't act the way it should
    Keeps calling me its master, but I feel like its slave
    Hauling me faster and faster to an early, early grave
    And it howls, it howls like hell

    I'm told it's my duty to fight against the law
    That wizardry's my trade and I was born to wade through gore
    I just want to be a lover, not a red-eyed screaming ghoul
    I wish it'd picked another to be its killing tool

    Black blade! Black blade!
    Forged a billion years ago
    Black blade! Black blade!
    Killing so its power can grow

    There's death from the beginning to the end of time
    And I'm the cosmic champion and I hold a mystic sign
    And the whole world's dying and the burdens mine
    And the black sword keeps on killing 'til the end of time

    Black blade! Black blade!
    Bringing chaos to the world we know
    Black blade! Black blade!
    And its using me to kill my friends
    Black blade! Black blade!
    Getting stronger so the world will end
    Black blade! Black blade!
    Forcing my mind to bend and bend

    The black blade
    Forged a million billion years ago
    My cosmic sword goes on for eternity
    Carving out destiny
    Bringing in the lords of chaos
    Bringing up the beasts of Hades
    Sucking out the souls of heroes
    Laying waste to knights and ladies
    My master is my slave
