with an ocean lost.

biting my tongue, biding my time
waiting for the clock, tick-tock out of mind

It all started with four strays and a locksmith with a debt
dressed for the occasion, and a still summers night it was

when he said to me:
'does this sound like something you'd step to?'
'or I'd throw it to the wind?'

I took the bait and found myself knocking at their door
with dead eyes and a still hand
no words were said
and into the shadows with a black horse they led me in

tuned in for what's next -
I picked the lock and went inside
the stench came first, and then I saw it
bodies spread about the floor
I'm out of depth but I made the choice.

Then he said to me:
'you made the choice and now it's time to join the dead'

with an ocean lost
I should have known to leave that bag of bones

and if I had the choice again, I'd throw his offer to the wind
