When you took her keys

She wants the music back
You took what you wanted for decades,
now she wants it back

A loan – That’s what she considered it,
and now you have to pay the piper (she’s more like a pipe)
She’s vital like an organ

She’ll accept payment in these forms:

– notes
– chords
– scales
– melodies

She watched you write the music down,
and draw it out of her like blood
Now you will become the donor

I suggest you do what she says –
The last time she felt as vindictive as this
was the last time you played a show

without her.
