Mr. Death” (George Alistair Sanger)

I can’t take a breath
I can’t make a move
I can’t think a thought
I can’t sing a song with a minimal groove
I can’t get away
From the singular fact
Well I can’t take a breath without seeing Mr. Death

I can’t take a bath
Mr. Death is washing my back
And I can’t do the disco
Mr. Death will dance on my foot
I can’t sing the rest

Well I can’t take a breath without seeing Mr. Death

But I can’t see Mr. Death
If I don’t take that breath

I can’t find my car keys
Better ask Mr. Death
And I get so lonely
We play a game of chess
Well I can’t take a breath
Well I can’t take a breath
Well I can’t take a breath
Well I can’t take a breath
Without seeing Mr., um, I don’t remember how it ends

48 years of livin’
An angel in disguise
48 years of lovin’
Smilin’ with my eyes
48 years of memories
Neatly tucked away
When daylight dies, I hear them rise
And dance upon their grave

What’s that sound
Comin’ from the dresser on a night as black as pitch?
What’s that sound
Comin’ from the bureau, do I dare turn on the switch?
Them bones, them bones, them dry bones
All bleached and deathly white
I’ve got skeletons in my closet and
They’re rattlin’ tonight

The cheat bone’s connected to deceit bones
And thereby connected to lies
I-love-yous said indiscriminately make the sockets for the eyes
The love bones knock against the hate bones
And fingers click in time
There won’t be sleep for the weary tonight
’Cause all those bones are mine

(Backgrounds)

Hup, Hup, they’re in my closet now
Hup, Hup, Hup, I’m trying to forsake ’em
Hup, Hup, they’re in my dresser now
Hup Hup Hup, I wouldn’t wanna wake ’em

Hup, Hup, they’re in my closet now
Hup, Hup, Hup, I’m trying to forsake ’em
Hup, Hup, they’re in my dresser now
Hup Hup Hup, I wouldn’t wanna wake ’em

Let’s take the time to find out what’s inside
Away from all this wind and rain
The six arrive, the fire lights their eyes
Invited here to learn to play
The Game

We travel blind and feel along the walls
And barely know from where we came
The paths divide the players from the rules
But we’re the ones who chose to play
The Game

Let’s take the time to find ourselves again
Away from daily stress and pain
Though we may find we’ll not come back the same
That happens sometimes when we play
The Game

Come play the shell game with the Madman
And maybe you can win his bride
Or you can try for something better
You decide

Why don’t you bet it all on Seven?
Your guess could be as good as mine
Just roll the bones, you could get lucky
For a time

I should be doing stuff
But I’d rather put it off
Until the final hour
I should be doing stuff
But I’d rather put it off
Until the final hour

Yes you can set your sights on Heaven
And there’s no better time than now
Everybody walks away a winner
Don’t ask how

Now that your luck has gotten colder
Perhaps you’ll tell me how it feels
To be the one who plays the Joker
Making deals
