Verse 1

You look like someone

Who could use a little help-

Whispered the serpent

Escaping the depths of Hell.

His brown eyes

Hypnotized

With promises of eternal light.

His sweet grin

Paper thin

Brought me into a glowering night.

Chorus

Black and white was my whole world,

With the ebb and tide of swirls,

Under his hypnotic trance,

Under his facile séance,

I took one fatal chance

That cost me everything I ever had.

(I see his face in myriads.)

Verse 2

You look like someone

Who could use a little help-

Whispered the serpent

Killing all my sense of self.

His cold hands

From lifespan

Of a million saturnine years,

Induced me

So subtly

With a million halcyon tears.

Chorus

Black and white was my whole world,

With the ebb and tide of swirls,

Under his hypnotic trance,

Under his facile séance,

I took one fatal chance

That cost me everything I ever had.

Bridge (Spoken. Evil male voice.)

"If thou shall ever forsake thine

Allegiance to this heart of mine,

Thence worshipped in the name of thee

Shall be mankind's sweet misery."

Chorus

Black and white was my whole world,

With the ebb and tide of swirls,

Under his hypnotic trance,

Under his facile séance,

I took one fatal chance

That cost me everything I ever had.

(I see his face in myriads.)
