Beowulf Pt.2

I asked her what his name was, then dropped the silver on the floor screaming it
His mother burst into a hysterical laugh, hoping that she was dreaming it
I should had seen the resemblance, I should had been a better parent than my own
His mother is promising death to me and the guilt wont leave me alone

I buried Grendel among my gods, a boy without a father lead wayward
I should had been proud of his many conquest instead of listening to the naysayers
His mom constantly tries to bed me and asking if I want something to eat
In between her promise to kill me is stuck on repeat

I know that she has plans to wear me down before she mounts her first attack
Questioning me until late into the night with talons raking at my back
Everytime I return drunk and filled with mead, she gets bolder and bolder
The weapons are getting bigger and bigger, itís getting harder to hold her

In my drunken state things have begun catching me by surprise
Her skin now resembles scales, the retractable talons, and the slanting of her eyes
She no longer walked about the cave, she slithered from here to there
And the skeletons began pouring out of her closet, but she no longer cared

Both of us drenched in mead and absinthe, the illusions could be seen through
She declared tonight you had better kill me, if not Iím going to kill you
She openly displayed her nudity with weapons at the ready in every corner
Tonight I will kill my babyís mother, but itís the first time that I donít wanta

No desire to hear the words of heroic sagas and songs
Before feeling the blade slide into her neck, I asked why canít we get along
But the sea has been calling, there is so much cluttered up in my head
Maybe while battling between the waves again I can finally forget the dead
