Cratloe

1/9

  1. Cratloe is a gloomy wood
  2. Where the path was lost
  3. Wild and terrible
  4. On an icy frost
  5. A young lovers’ tryst
  6. In the dark of the night
  7. Five feral beasts
  8. Appear out of sight
  9. Lust and greed
  10. The visceral drive
  11. Vacant eyes
  12. Allow them to thrive
  13. Two worlds collide
  14. In chance and fate
  15. Me in the woods?
  16. And you on the date?
  17. Or maybe the reverse
  18. If hand on heart
  19. We know its dice
  20. That sets up apart
  21. The car starts to steam
  22. And temperatures rise
  23. Heavy clouds pass
  24. Benighting the skies
  25. Hearts begin to race
  26. Clothes become unmade
  27. Passion floods reason
  28. & the need to be afraid
  29. There’s excitement outside
  30. In freezing souls
  31. Setting their target
  32. And abject goals
  33. Was there a moment of doubt?
  34. A way to stop?
  35. To save that couple
  36. And river tear-drop
  37. I’ve been there myself
  38. Body not mind
  39. Conscious unconscious
  40. Forever intertwined
  41. The evil of that night
  42. Was a deeper downfall
  43. Escaping is the addiction
  44. It’s not pills at all
  45. The craven beasts strike
  46. A horror of two-backs
  47. The terror of the woods
  48. In a malefic climax
  49. Locked in the boot
  50. He bleeds from his ears
  51. Locked on her back
  52. She bleeds through her tears
  53. There is no mercy
  54. No sense to it all
  55. Piss poor coke
  56. And cheap ethanol
  57. The culprits were from here
  58. The place I call home
  59. Suddenly the source
  60. Of a base syndrome
  61. This was my marker
  62. When the way was lost
  63. Shame and loathing
  64. A pride holocaust
  65. Worse was to follow
  66. But it started here
  67. A journey through Hell
  68. As dreams disappear
  69. Lives were shattered
  70. And scorn rained down
  71. We became a pariah
  72. Wedged from the town
  73. Darkness quickly followed
  74. A chill on the wind
  75. We became the woods
  76. Wretched and sinned
  77. Two new powers
  78. Took hold of the land
  79. Like those in Hamelin
  80. We didn’t quite understand
  81. It wasn’t long
  82. Before change took hold
  83. The Street would be ravaged
  84. Bought and sold
