Devil’s Lullaby
(T. Downing/S. Downing)

Please don’t ask for consolation
I cannot help you anymore
It seems a hopeless situation
A sad reality

You never asked for my opinion
You never spoke when I was there
You were held by three chameleons
Blowing smoke rings in the air

Hold me, come hold me now
Enfold me in the sky
Let me hear the evening song
The devil’s lullaby
And should you fall
One winter’s day
The angels and devils around us surround us
And take your soul away

How many times did I tell you
I could not love you anymore?
Now memories compile upon memories
I find I’m missing you

But you were cold and introspective
And didn’t care enough to smile
And on your back, the three chameleons
That kept you naked, like a child



from Circe, released August 15, 1990
