(inspired by Cocteau's Les Enfants Terribles)
Lisabeth's playing the Game
Giraffe's sucking his thumb
Agatha's in, Love
And Paul is on Dargelos
Paul is on Dargelos
You play Terror, I play Fear
Lash me Naked, I smile you Black
We drink Happy, We play Blood
All because we are, in love
-- Am I lying that I am believing
that I am believing that I am lying?
I know that I Love you but I cannot say.
