Fable

it came to me when I was six
with open flame and candlestick
it came again when I was ten
with my heartbeat in his hand

we sat inside the applebox
and read the book of snakes
and every word of hope and love
and teeth and eyes and hate

come sit with me imagine this
your every dream a granted wish
but when you age the deal we’ve made
will bring me back and you will pay

you never trade with six six six
the devil takes the graveyard shift
but if you pray the truth away
he’ll make it quick on promise day

we sat inside the applebox
and read the book of snakes
and every word of hope and love
and teeth and eyes and hate

it said to me when I come back
you will have grown into a man
and we will speak about your son
and how I trick another one

we sat inside the applebox
and read the book of snakes
and every word of hope and love
and teeth and eyes and hate
