lyrics

At night, I hear the sound
Of her calling softly for me,
A song so lovely I can
Hardly keep my hands
Folded in my lap

I see the shiny crown
Decked with rubies, laden with gold,
A gleam so rosy I will
Hardly care to taste
Blood again

Sleep, as I weep
Drift me gently off to sea
And, next we meet
You can't run away from me

Deep in my teeth
See me ripping in two
Have we fallen
In too
Deep in my teeth
Watch me gripping for you
As you throw me
Deeper into

BLACK
TAR PIT
FIRE
CHARRED
SPIT

A not
so subtle
puddle on the floor
Not so subtle, now
are we--
dead
already?
You've gotten blacker
I'm only dirty
Right now
