Strings Rewrite

The sweetest strings draw him under,
His life becomes a distant thunder. 
Naively down he goes.
Seduced by notes within the sea,
A hope to end the misery.

A place where sun and sky can’t see.
A sorrow deep where love can’t be,
Empty in himself.
To the bottom of his soul he drops,
Where time is lost, but never stops.

He hears the devil play each note,
The strings of death that pull and choke.
He eagerly descends.
Seduction pure, true, unfair,
In prison now with body bare. 

Evil thoughts and evil deeds,
He drops his coins at evil’s feet.
Darkened is his heart.
He’ll pay until the final dawn,
The final day when death is gone.
