06 - Play The Pauper
i still wander in the moonlight
i know my way around here
all these succubi they gather
and tell me what i want to hear
with each moan they bring me closer
to the gates at heaven's lawn
but the foliage turns to embers
i'm at the river Styx by dawn
i have spent my last 2 coppers
at night on ladies in distress
i still see her eyes in memories
her taste still lingers on my breath
insatiably i crave her touch
though she does not respect her flesh
