Foolish Notion


You fell easily into the spider's web
The beautiful spider, and it's elegant legs
You didn't struggle as it appeared in the distance
Waited intently for your mistress

But you're just a fly
And you're so broken
You can't deny
This foolish notion

Her approach reflecting in your big red eyes
Excitement rising, anticipation high
You yearned to go meet her embrace
Even as you stood frozen in place

You're just a fly
And you're so broken
It's almost time
It's almost over

As she spins you in her sensuous silk
You're whole body surrenders to her will
At last, her kiss, so powerful and penetrating
You become listless, you're devestated

You're just a fly
And you're so broken
Destroyed from the inside
By a foolish notion

Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
