(2.42) Cigarettes (Stealing Moments From Their Masters...)
They’re one of your few pleasures,
But they’re bad for you, you know...
You laugh at the statistics,
There’re more likely ways to go.
You have nothing to live for...
You lost your life long ago
Because it’s no longer yours,
Sold the first time you went on show
On the slavers’ auction block,
Betrayed by your one true friend,
You stood shivering in your smock
As he brought you to a bad end
There’re worse things than cigarettes,
As you’ve come to know too well.
Life was going well, you thought,
But now you’re living in Hell, ...
(1.5) The Dreamer
The full moon beckons
To my heart
And clutches that most
With dark dreams of those
And a lovely lady that
Fades from sight
Fantasies that now fade
And make me yearn again
for the night...
