Megadeth - Lucretia

Sitting up late at night
I tiptoe through the darkness
Cold as hell black as spades
Aware of my immediate surrounding
In my place I escape
Up into my hideout
Hiding from everyone
My friends all say
Dave your mental any way hey!
Drift into a deeper state
I stalk the cobwebbed stairways
Dirt grits beneath my feet
The stair creaks, I precariously sneak

Hypnosis guides my hand
I slipslide through the walkways
Sit in granny's rockin' chair
Memories are whirling by yeah
Reminisce in the attic
Lucretia waits impatiently
Cobwebs make me squint
The cobra so eloquently glints
Moonbeams surge through the sky
The crystal ball's energized
Surely that like the cat waiting
Lucretia rocks away

Here's a quick explanation from Dave in 1990: "It's about this guy who happens to be named Dave, and he just has problems, and his friends all think he's crazy and he goes to see this fortune teller. She talks about how he feels, where he's going, how he gets there, and the fact that she knew he was coming and she's been waiting for him for a long time."
