Crimes in the spring
True Love calls for crimes in the spring.

Is it the heart or the head
split open in the bed?
You're playing host to a friend's ghost that you set wandering.

She told you who you were
and you listened to her.
Here you stand - filth-coated hands - while she cries "Madman" and "Murderer".

Toil and trouble bore this blood bubble
to burst and stain if not contained - your house reduced to rubble.
Your name forever accursed.

This is nice. It's pretty laid-back for, you know, horrible tragedy!
