since when does lion rhyme with dying?

you're like a tiger shark
you wait for me in the dark
snapping at my feet
i bet my blood tastes sweet
devoured by gnashing teeth
it comes as somewhat a relief

you're like a vicious lion
i'm the zebra who keeps on dying
stripped of my skin and bone
is this what it feels like to be alone

you're all a figment of my mind
created because i feel unkind
you never existed you never will
afraid of me because i'm ill

you'll all go away if i put one in my head
no more thoughts when all is dead.
