Eye For An Eye (Duet With Kristy De La Keur)

I'm in the house all alone.
 (She is no where near alone in this house.)
I hear the ringing of the phone.
 (And believe me its not just a mere mouse.)

I answer, but oddly there is no one there.
 (Not even a dial tone, will she hear on the line.)
I think this is more than the average scare.
 (When this is over, not even her body, they'll find.)

I hang up and turn around, eyes open wide.
 (My decaying corpse I shall let her see.)
I realize suddenly I'm trapped inside.
 (Tell whomever you want, but no one will believe.)

Even though I'm locked inside, I still try to flee.
 (I slam the door, there is no escape here!)
Oh why, oh why won't this ghost let me free?
 (Oh how I love the smell of her fear!)

Oh Lord I wish I could take back that night.
 (She should never have been drinking.)
When I ran her down in drunken delight.
 (What was wrong with her, what was she thinking?)

I got out of the car to see what I had hit.
 (I lay on the road a crumpled heap.)
In my stupor I pick her up so I can take her to a fresh dug pit.
 (She throws me carelessly in the back of her Jeep.)

I now see for the wrong I've done I MUST make amend.
 (Breathing hard with sweat beading on her forehead.)
I grab my chest as my life suddenly comes to an end.
 (Eye for an eye we're even now that she too, is dead.)
