    !---- spoiler ----!

    in the corner of the morning in the past
    i would sit and blame the master first and last
    all the roads were straight and narrow
    and the prayers were small and yellow
    and the rumour spread that i was aging fast
    then i ran across a monster who was sleeping by a tree.

    and i looked and frowned and the monster was me

    well, i said hello and i said hello
    and i asked "why not?" and i replied "i don't know"
    so we asked a simple black bird, who was happy as can be

    and he laughed insane and quipped "kahlil gibran"
    so i cried for all the others till the day was nearly through
    for i realized that god's a young man too

    so i said "so long" and i waved "bye-bye"
    and i smashed my soul and traded my mind

    got laid by a young bordello
    i was vaguely half asleep
    for which my reputation swept back home in drag

    and the moral of this magic spell
    negotiates my hide
    when god did take my logic for a ride
    (riding along)

    he swallowed his pride and puckered his lips
    and showed me the leather belt round his hips
    my knees were shaking my cheeks aflame
    he said "you'll never go down to the gods again"
    (turn around,go back!)

    he struck the ground a cavern appeared
    and i smelt the burning pit of fear
    we crashed a thousand yards below
    i said "do it again, do it again"
    (turn around,go back!)

    his nebulous body swayed above
    his tongue swollen with devil's love
    the snake and i, a venom high
    i said "do it again, do it again"
    (turn around, go back!)

    breathe, breathe, breathe deeply

    and i was seething, breathing deeply
    spitting sentry, horned and tailed

    waiting for you
