Master I learned from     more than anybody him

what love is how / To recognize it love

That’s how I knew I was right to cut Mary’s throat

Thinking of what he     did to me my

body what I knew he would

Do to Mary     to Priscilla cut     / Didn’t just cut

and leave her body move

On to her sister     made     sure she was dead

I loved her     wanted her / Head to come off in my hands
