Killing at Mill Creek
Sleek, sleek, the rushing creek
the rushing creek so sleek
Harsh, harsh, the bubbling marsh
the bubbling marsh so harsh
Chill, chill, the creaking mill
the creaking mill so chill
Deep, deep, the vagrant sleep
the vagrant sleep so deep
Dead, dead, the floating head
the floating head so dead.
