Eve at the mansion

Today they brought Mommy to the grave;
I buried my dolls near that hedge.
A year ago I had to put them away,
Down inside my closet I asked them to stay…

I'd just got 13 and Mommy would say
That when I’m 13 we should give all the dolls away.
I see before me these open red eyes, two little globes or rubicund flies.
They turn and glare behind the stove and see my hands still under my gloves…
(Under my gloves)

Don’t you move now a monster is sneaking.
Don’t you breathe now on your lap he’s sitting
Oh stupid monster! How stupid he is!
Thinks he’s gonna tell us something weird.
And you know what ? I’m not scared at all, you know, my sister my dear?
And you know what, my sister my dear?
We’re gonna teach him what is real fear... .

Yes we all would play with Mommy until the morning sent her to the dirt.
“There’s no drama in this house, he now says, that’s it, with the day she passed away”.
I see on your face darkness is coming, but in her tomb your mama still lying…

Don’t you speak now tobacco is burning. Don’t you call her, now, she won’t be coming.
Oh witty daughter! How witty you are!
Think you’re gonna step her back to here.

And you know what ? I won’t believe that with your cries , my daughter my dear ?
You know what I won’t believe you’re gonna find her back from there to here…
back to here

Don’t you go know, for your wife is speaking.
Don’t you lie now truth will soon spring!
Unfaithful father, what a shame you now show!
What do you think from her mouth will blow?
And you know what? I’m not scared at all.
You know, my daddy my dear ?
And you know what, my daddy my dear?
Can see on your face what is real fear… what is real fear!
