The Stolen Mind
There rips the spinal column,

Oh, lovely is the wake.

They do lie rather solemn ,

With the pretty autumn rake

Lodged right into their backs.

Hey, let's put them all on racks!

Let's be merry!

Hm, what else is necessary?

Do come away, say, where is my mind?

In the waters or was it the wild?

Don't, let's tarry- bloody bad, bloody bad.

For I so love to hear a world weeping,

More than you can understand.

Now where was my last playmate.

Had I hidden them much too well?

What 'twill I do, I've fallen late

Oh, damn it all to hell!

I'll weave some bright new nooses,

Start mixing herbs and poisoned juices

Boy, these things do nicely sell.

Here and there I reap

And chase with frothing kisser,

I take them in a whisper,

Quite is all a graceful feat.

Do come away, say, where is my mind?

In the waters or was it the wild?

Don't, let's tarry- bloody bad, bloody bad,

For I so love to hear a world weeping,

More than you can understand.

When the silly fools wander

From the safety of their beds,

Far off in the blue yonder

A place untouched by even feds.

I seek my darlings out,

And screaming at their heels,

Give them nightmares, I hear pleas;

O'er we toss in friendly bout,

'Till useless deals

Altogether begin to cease.

Do come away, say, where is my mind?

In the waters or was it the wild?

Don't, let's tarry- bloody bad, bloody bad

For I so love to hear a world weeping,

More than you can understand.

Come hither to my domain,

All googly-eyed;

There shall you remain

Right here, love ,on my bedside.

Light up the funeral pyre,

Sing a hymn for eternal rest,

No, no, it shan't be dire,

For I shall certainly do my best.

Do come away, say, where is my mind?

In the waters or was it the wild?

Don't, let's tarry- bloody bad, bloody bad,

Whee! A world so full of weeping,

Oh, yeah, like I would understand.
