    It will give you away Oh child,

    oh child, what have you done? The blood on your knife says you’ve killed someone! Don’t touch it, don’t touch it! Don’t hold that blade! Whenever you smile, it gives you away. Ah, little ghost. You found your way, to banish your fear and deny your pain. Ah, little...
