SLIPPING INTO DARKNESS
_____________________________________

It is red
It is wet
The puddle on the floor
Beneath a swollen corpse
Oozing stench behind the door
Slipping into darkness
Falling into darkness
Thrust into the darkness
Of someone else’s life

Rotting black
And sickening
His body and my mind
A smell forever haunting
An everlasting find
Slipping into darkness
Falling into darkness
Thrust into the darkness
Of someone else’s life

Coroner
Then Sheriff
Mustache and a tattoo
Questioning ID
Is he someone that I knew?
Slipping into darkness
Falling into darkness
Thrust into the darkness
Of someone else’s life

Friendly smile
Friendly talk
You say the weather’s nice
I pretend and hide it
Just played out Miami Vice
Slipping into darkness
Falling into darkness
Thrust into the darkness
Of someone else’s life

Hold me now
And heal me
Kiss teardrops in my eyes
They have seen the salty side
Still see the dead man’s eyes
Slipping into darkness
Falling into darkness
Thrust into the darkness
Of someone else’s life
