The tune sparkled in my head, whispering the solemn words of the dead.

It danced the dances of many, a heart of stone.

Take the bait, precious.

Follow me to my house.

My hypnotic glow will shimmer, show the song a home.

I faked it, I can tell you this,

You're asking for poison, a dose of death.

If you want it, I can give it.

A stab through the neck?

A flame to your heart?

A shot to your head.

Just a little bit of poison, so contagious

can silence your words, so outrageous.
