	 Ballad of the Dead Man
	 
	 One knows the wicked tale of woe,
     the ballad of the ghoul, the dark man
     who below the fated sun in Arizona fell:
     the bloody moon could tell his fate:
        Moon, moon, the bloody deeds are done,
          remember now the fated skull of men who dared
           the doom of StoneFaery's serpent stare!

     He walked into the dark saloon, 
     a victim of his bad mood,
     the men in round the poker stools
     looked up for surely this must be a fool:
       Moon, moon, the bloody deeds are done,
          remember now the fated skull of men who dared
           the doom of StoneFaery's serpent stare!

     Now the man in grey, his hat all white,
     walked through the door that day,
     he spied the dark man in his suit
     below the hidden cage: his blood red with hate:
        Moon, moon, the bloody deeds are done,
          remember now the fated skull of men who dared
           the doom of StoneFaery's serpent stare!

     Now we come to the end of our tale:
     the fate of men who wrong their gals;
     the dark man fell before the gun,
     the man of light his magnum blown:
       Moon, moon, the bloody deeds are done,
          remember now the fated skull of men who dared
           the doom of StoneFaery's serpent stare!

     So when you see a woman wronged, beware, beware:
     the man of light shall appear,
     his mind a blade, his hand a sword,
     unswerveing in his honor boldly defending all the goddesses:
        Moon, moon, the bloody deeds are done,
          remember now the fated skull of men who dared
           the doom of StoneFaery's serpent stare!
