DREAMING OF SHADOWS (Room 401)

Well, I’m fighting for the quiet. Trying to savor this moment.

What about that? How about that?

You knew it was a game and that’s how we played it, dead man.

What about that? How about that?

 

Well, I could tell you stories that would freeze your blood.

Just start your hysterics with your knees knocking click-clack.

Before you knew it you were writing your obituary.

I’ll go through your pockets, leave you for the wharf rats.

Oh. Oh. What about that? 

Oh. Oh. How about that?

 

Yeah, you wouldn’t pay a penny. My guy was tearing out his hair.

What about that? How about that?

Maybe we can make a deal right here, you and me. 

Just kidding. Made you look, didn’t I?

What about that? How about that?

 

One long step from here to the finish, boy.

One fatal bullet and I’ll see you at the gate.

It doesn’t make a difference now. You had it coming.

Slab side of jellyfish. Howling for the brass hat.

Oh. Oh. What about that? 

Oh. Oh. How about that?

 

How about that? You’ve been dreaming of shadows.

How things happen I guess nobody ever knows.

 

Well, the trail was freezing. You had me going round in circles.

What about that? How about that?

I guess I just have a nose for this sort of thing. Go ahead and holler copper, Junior.

What about that? How about that?

 

Well, boys will be boys and a stooge is a stooge.

No squawks when it’s over. I’m sneaking up behind you.

Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Look around the city. Look around for the last time.

 

Oh. Oh. What about that? 

Oh. Oh. How about that?

 

How about that? You’ve been dreaming of shadows.

How things happen I guess nobody ever knows.

Nobody ever knows.
