The Heist

In the cold dark night. Soaking in the bleak and blight
Head is filled with madness and lo the blow below
Begins to rage.
Oh the beautiful lie! Seductress with an evil eye.
If I taste your lips just once tonight, the Light I fright
Just might turn on His heels
I’ve been promising the Lord again
I won’t go sleeping with the wolves again
But every single thing that does me in
Is calling on my animal tonight
Shot down like a target colored brightly
Forgo escape routes the Advocate gives nightly
Smitten kitten in a self-sought sin scheme
The skin begins its singe (who’s at the door?)
When the hinges start to creak
And the darkness starts to quake
In a ransack of the devil’s little whorehouse
The Heist of Christ ignites the dirty soul
