  • Oh, Captain of my industry
    Oh, cigarettes & company
    I'm never where I want to be
    The dirty, dirty ground

    Oh, Halloween!
    The blood you drew
    You carved a space to climb into
    & like a lantern, like a pyre
    I burn, I burn with holy fire

    I talk when I don't have to
    & I hope it doesn't matter
    'cause we know what we know
    I don't know how you do it, but I change
    & you see to it that we ain't got no show
    & all I could see in the ink of the dark
    Was your cigarette, breathing
    Like a beating heart
    I fold mine in, like origami
    It might look pretty
    But you do not know me

    I talk when I don't have to
    & I hope it doesn't matter
    'cause we know what we know
    I don't know how you do it, but I change
    & you see to it that we ain't got no show

    Oh, Halloween
    Oh, jealous star
    Are you who you say you are?
    I thought you would have found me out by now

    Oh, Halloween
    The blood you drew
    You carved a space to climb into

    I don't know what I should have seen
    Not since Halloween
