lyrics

Voodoo Doll

There was a Voodoo Doll
And some needles on a chair
Some bits of cloth
Scissors and human hair

Broken glass and broken plates
Scattered everywhere
With the knives
And silverware

Signs of a struggle
There was evidence of trouble
In the hall
The smell of cigarettes and piss
Maybe bourbon soaked the wall

All the photos from the desk
Were scattered on the floor
I don’t remember much that night
But clearly something wasn’t right

A consequence of recklessness
But this one’s off the charts
You never know what’s lurking
Behind the minds of broken hearts
The minds of broken hearts
They’re dangerous and seriously dark

Last thing I remember
I was walking from her room
Back through the park
Someone stepped beside me
Asked politely for a cigarette
And spark

Then I woke up to the sounds of
A whispering sultry mess
Chanting and moaning and naked painted breasts

They sang incantations
In golden horns with feathered frill
Danced around the carpet where some men had held me down against my will

Burn marks and a tattoo made with pins and ballpoint ink
The sound of running water
And my bloody molar in the sink

A consequence of recklessness
But this one’s off the charts
You never know what’s lurking
Behind the minds of broken hearts
The minds of broken hearts
They’re dangerous and seriously dark

There was a Voodoo Doll
And some needles on a chair

With a broken nose
Pins pushed in it here and there
Silver hair
On the effigy
A Voodoo Doll
With a look that looked like me
