Blank eyes, cold skin
Watch him saunter in
All of them charmed by the jewels in the bitchumen
Push through, hold back
Aim for throat and around and around doors now closed I'm about to implode

Oo you make me crazy come with me my little lady
Softly land but my hand is on show
The beaten and buried, ruff cuts and blood flow
