This probably makes no sense at all
but I’m he who answered the Devil’s call.
And all I want now is one more glass
to drink and say, “This too shall pass.”
No, keep your rum. I just want blood.
I’m just another pig in the mud.
I don’t know love, I don’t know hate.
I’m just a victim who blames fate.
Don’t wake me up, I hardly sleep.
Don’t forget to laugh, even when I weep.
I merely exist until I’m slaughtered
and then served as the meat you ordered.
Keep your booze. I just want blood.
I’d probably settle for shit… a pig in the mud.
