Something Very Horrible ("Bluebeard's Lament") - radio edit

from by Duality237



good story about this track on my bandcamp HERE:

Joe's got his version of the tune HERE it's more the theatrical version:

Here is the Song-Fu contest version:

This is the first completed project we ever did together, although the Thing that brought us together is a poem I wrote for Sister of the Wolf, Joe's novel:

And a song we worked on together that was a special project of Joe's - found here:


They tied our hands together
that time that we met
It was maybe a little intense for our first date

And I don't have a homeland now
No one's really from anywhere I s'pose
I've heard the rumors but I'm lying here undressed

My love, you'll be alright
You've reached a place of safety
Be careful, good night
don't look behind your fears
For I have drawn a curtain right over the darkness
Here, come claim your home
don't look for hidden halls

In the morning I'm not shy because you're mine
And you say these things - they're all for me
And I don't put no stock
in all the suspicious storytellings
when my mind is shocked by love
Then you tell me not to walk on down the hall

For anything, (for anything)
For anything...
My love I thought I gave you all that you wanted...
So now we'll go away into the darkness

And you know what curiosity did for that cat

They tied our hands together, the *last* time we met
(it was almost too easy, it was almost too tragic)
You say that I have all of your resources, and your love
(I waited for the inevitable end of the line)

Only one thing that I asked
(you gave me the keys)
You know what curiosity did for the cat
My beautiful girl
(to everything, to everything -)

(How can a man who can touch me like you do...)
I already know you will ignore my requests
( so violent and sad, with no regret … )
And now the key will never wipe clean
