a reggae style new track
A new Reggae tune I recently wrote
Added a DeeJay Toast over the middle to give it a little dancehall vibes(ToasT)
What if I only came to Theif and
What if I didn't want to hurt her
What if a normal burglary took lives
In Turn Became a Murder
A Simple Situation Suddenly placed out of order
I'd gone too far and my next step would take me a bit further
Who knew that painting the roses red was such a dirty deed
But if you're gonna be Vinicius, Gonna watch dem colors bleed
No need to question you know what you came to see here
Try enjoy the morning paper read a bit discretely
These jagged edges should of been cut a bit more neatly
Throws from the hammer bros., Mario defeat me
Now the streams of crimson blood will flow until they reach me
Now its time to make a break before the law beseech me
the lyrics come from an account by thomas birt written in 1829, called Streams of Crimson Blood, about how a Burglar breaks into rich old couple's house and kills them both.
A barbarous foul and horrid deed, I shortly shall recite, Which did occur in Portsmouth town, Upon a Sunday night, An aged man of 80 years, his housekeeper likewise, Were there most basely murdered, By a monster in disguise. All in the night so dark and drear, His entrance he obtained, And with a deadly hammer he, Beat out the old man's brains, His throat he cut from ear to ear, Most horrible to view, And streams of crimson blood did flow, The bedroom through and through. The aged housekeeper likewise, Lay butchered on the floor, Her face and hands most cruelly, Were cut and stabbed full sore, Her head was nearly severed, From off her body quite, Those who beheld it shivered, So dreadful was the sight. When at the bar the killer stood, Could not deny his guilt, 'Twas clearly proved that he the aged, Couple's blood had spilt, The jury found him guilty and, The Judge to him did say, 'You must prepare to end your life, Upon a hanging day'.
