about

inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

lyrics

hear the heavy tread and the muffled, desperate groan
of the thing that's locked inside
and changing clothes and changing bones

well I will never be the one
to loathe to say my shoulders are broad enough
to take the weight of this blame upon myself

and a hundred chivalries cannot undo
what that vile concoction you drank down made you
it changed from red to green to orange to grey
to black to yellow to blue
and that evil creature you let out
that wicked beast was you

and our name shall be revenge
so pick the lock or knock the door off its hinges
and we shall find
the answer to the mystery that's been plaguing us so long
so long my old friend

and our name shall be revenge
so pick the lock or knock the door off its hinges
and we shall find
the body lying cold, a portmanteau intact
with instructions on how to win you back
but you're not coming back my old friend
