Noir


Standing under the lamp post
Boy, it's dark.
The only light around
Is the light that shines from my heart.

Can you hear me?
Hello?
Hello?
Wait, I'll call you back again.

Walking along the stony footpath
Leeches and maggots and dead flies.
Squelch. Squelch.
Squelch.

The stench of death
Drifting through the air.
I cover my nose
Fruity undertones masking it out.

Beelzebub standing in the corner
Smiling his wicked smile.
Stretches out his hand
He's waiting for me.

I have waited for you for so long
Where have you been?
I've been right here baby
Now let's go eat.
