From the second I saw her, I knew she’d be my ruin.
Sitting all alone at the bar, she looked like an angel.
Eurydice in human form; her beauty eclipsed by demons.
Now, I’m one of them.
The ghost she’s tried for years to escape.
Thinking I wouldn’t be able to find her.
But I never stopped trying, and now that I have,
her past sins should be the least of her worries.
From the moment he saw me, I knew I’d ruin his life.
Alone at the bar, I dared the monster to come and play.
Orpheus in the flesh, with his sad songs and strange obsessions.
I became one of them.
The siren who calls to the darkest parts of him.
Only, I disappeared before he could act on it.
But now he’s here,
and he wants me to repent for my sins.
