|clutched in her||G|
|But she writes the darkest||G|
|I’ll stay to||G|

She greets the filkers sweetly and then sings of death and gore,
Or of incubi who drain you dry and leave you wanting more,
Or of undead monsters sucking out the lifeblood of their prey,
Who hunt you down at nighttime and shun the light of day.
But her soul is caught in torment; she is clearly torn by strife.
Such horrid themes from one who seems a sweetheart in real life!
And she writes at least a dozen songs a month, or so they say.
And I’d hate to see what horrors don’t see the light of day.
