Blind old crow scavenging a battleground,
Hungry dog spurning a free meal,
Where were you? Doesn't really matter now,
Eyes shut tight stopping it feel real.
Two wilds girls skinning goats in the badlands,
Old man fighting off a wolf with his bare hands.
I'll make you a deal if you try to imagine it
Cut me a piece or I'll have to take all of it.

Shrunken head pickled in a cookie jar,
On display to frighten the kids,
A mortal God reflected by an avatar,
Tries once more to loosen the lid.
Young man cashing out a bet on a friend's life,
Rich girl slaughtering a bull with a bent knife.
I'll make you deal if you try to imagine it
Cut me a piece or I'll have to take all of it.

Counting years, atoms of eternity,
Then one day energy breaks loose,
Time folds in harvesting the best of me,
Take what's left, put it to bad use.
Whole town down at the store for the witch trial,
Excess stock on the son-of-a-bitch aisle.
I'll make you deal if you try to imagine it
Cut me a piece or I'll have to take all of it.
