11/6


 

He grabs your unsuspecting hands;

The devil reaches

And shakes-

He makes a deal

You never saw coming.

A deal you couldn’t break.

One second you’re standing there,

The next he’s got hold

And he says

“You ain’t going nowhere,”

Now you’re sweating,

But he doesn’t care.

Before you know it

You’re on your own.

You start reaching for more

Unsuspecting hands

To bring into the circle.

You’re working for him now.

How did it come to this?

You try and let go;

Resist,

But their grasp grows tighter.

“Stay,”

They say-

They insist.

Ring around the Rosies...

You’re spinning around;

A psychedelic blur.

You gave in towards the end-

Somewhere around

“Ashes, ashes,”

With a haunting echo, repeating, “We all fall down,”

But when you let go it never stopped

You sank further and further into the ground.
