Amidst the party lights

And women scant’ly clad

I catch the worst of sights

A girl in black goes bad.


I know her very well

Her name is Mary Claire

She’s never been to hell

I wonder why she’s there.


Her wings and halo gone

Her innocence long dead

Just judgment has been done

For lust and sins unsaid.


T’was I who stole her all

Her life, so pure and chaste

As I devour her soul

I sigh upon such waste.


The girl I once had loved

Now angel’s tainted black

Thrown from heaven above

She’s never coming back.
