Soo surprising
my god
Its never black and white
they are all frauds
the medium says you can tell me something
but what does the crystal ball really have to say?
a key to the fairytale and something you are trying to say

Here it is detective
Here is those that have fallen into the trap
They have all died differently mercilessly
just follow the links 
the logic and see
how their pieces click
and add up
pointing you this way or that

The nonexistatnt crime scene
and another clue 
another clue
another clue on this list for you to find
tell me where to go
what to read and let me leave this disaster behind

Oh dear detective
do not fear of being a sitting duck
I'm just the mortician
and the bodies have told me soo much
next to nothing
back to grey and the lines in between
I'm not sure what to say or what it means
but they want something everyday
besides the bloodshed of Halloween

Oh detective
i know to hush the children
and guard the traps we set for Satan
but tell me what you know in the commentary of the ones who have fallen 
the ones who have died 
and let the crime scene begin
who has read the wrong poem
who was murdered by the cats of curiousity
wearing the seven crowns of recycled dreams

tell me detectives as these ghosts are here with the medium and I
we hush you
and rush you there is a I'm to find and the dead bodies
are right here for proof
right under this commentary to lead you to your clues
its a nonexistant crime scene detective
i don't know what else to say
the poets
the poets
its a literary mess
they are taking a stand
and are haunted by holy ghosts and scenery of babel warning metaphors

now be gone go on your way
go find another one
and report it to the chief of police
all i can say
is I've seen soo many
I'm just the mortician
and these are the dead bodies
