A fantastical memoir of when I dined with the Devil

An invite from the Devil

I met the devil,

I met the devil, And we became Friends,

I met the devil, And we became Friends, He told me he'd be with me,

I met the devil, And we became Friends, He told me he'd be with me, Until the very end.

We danced and we dined;

We danced and we dined; An infinite night.

We danced and we dined; An infinite night. Where shadows lived in Waltz,

We danced and we dined; An infinite night. Where shadows lived in Waltz, Foxtrotting from the light.

We spoke of many things,

We spoke of many things, All in riddle and in rhyme.

We spoke of many things, All in riddle and in rhyme. I lost all sense of concept,

We spoke of many things, All in riddle and in rhyme. I lost all sense of concept, And never knew of time.

We dressed in gold and silver,

We dressed in gold and silver, Ambassadors of lust,

We dressed in gold and silver, Ambassadors of lust, The garments tore my skin,

We dressed in gold and silver, Ambassadors of lust, The garments tore my skin, When they began to rust.

We watched as feasts were served,

We watched as feasts were served, Admiring from our thrones,

We watched as feasts were served, Admiring from our thrones, But all was spoiled and sour,

We watched as feasts were served, Admiring from our thrones, But all was spoiled and sour, And guests were skin and bone.

Court Jesters entertained,

Court Jesters entertained, As crowds cheered and shrieked,

Court Jesters entertained, As crowds cheered and shrieked, They juggled stray, lost souls,

Court Jesters entertained, As crowds cheered and shrieked, They juggled stray, lost souls, Whose suffering made them meek.

I tired of the carousal,

I tired of the carousal, Arose and yearned to leave,

I tired of the carousal, Arose and yearned to leave, But my knee's were weak and ankles bound,

I tired of the carousal, Arose and yearned to leave, But my knee's were weak and ankles bound, I saw the Devil seethe...

"I told you I'd be with you",

"I told you I'd be with you", He howled into the night,

"I told you I'd be with you", He howled into the night, "Until the end of ages...

"I told you I'd be with you", He howled into the night, "Until the end of ages... Beyond the realms of sight,

"I told you I'd be with you", He howled into the night, "Until the end of ages... Beyond the realms of sight, And now you try to leave?!

"I told you I'd be with you", He howled into the night, "Until the end of ages... Beyond the realms of sight, And now you try to leave?! Through madness and in fright?

"I told you I'd be with you", He howled into the night, "Until the end of ages... Beyond the realms of sight, And now you try to leave?! Through madness and in fright? You're with me for eternity...

Through suffering and in blight"

I had met the devil,

I had met the devil, A cruel twist of fate,

I had met the devil, A cruel twist of fate, He whispers to me slowly,

I had met the devil, A cruel twist of fate, He whispers to me slowly, And softly says...

I had met the devil, A cruel twist of fate, He whispers to me slowly, And softly says... "Check mate"
