In the Shadow of the Seven Stars

In the Shadow of the Seven Stars

LOCATION: Swallow Gardens, Royal Mint Street, Whitechapel

Lamp smokes
Heart skips
Shoe falls
Locket slips

Cold eyes
Hard stare
Black night
Still air

Player on a deadly stage
Witness to a lustful rage
In the shadow of the seven stars

Last call of a nightingale
Sorrowful her plaintive wail
In the shadow of the seven stars

A body turns
A body stalls
A body lifts
A body falls

Seconds come
Seconds go
Sound fades
Movement slows

Player on a deadly stage
Witness to a lustful rage
In the shadow of the seven stars

Last call of a nightingale
Sorrowful her plaintive wail
In the shadow of the seven stars

Mortal fear
Shaking leaf
Cautious steps
Turn to flee

A quiet voice
A halting plea
Time to run
None must see

Player on a deadly stage
Witness to a lustful rage
In the shadow of the seven stars

Last call of a nightingale
Sorrowful her plaintive wail
In the shadow of the seven stars

Player on a deadly stage
Witness to a lustful rage
In the shadow of the seven stars

Last call of a nightingale
Sorrowful her plaintive wail
In the shadow of the seven stars
