“Antithesis/Killed the Cat”
July 2005

Why do you stand ready for me
/around every corner
Antagonizing my every move
/beating me at my own game

I’d like to know you better
to destroy you from the inside out
I see you move ahead of me again
I’ll be ready for you someday

You have no idea how hard it is
to keep up this stupid game
Of cat and mouse–backwards still
I want to destroy you from the inside

I want to end this stupid game
Once and for all beat you to the punch
I can’t keep up this stupid game
I want to destroy you from the inside

I envision this as the lyrics to a heavy metal song playing in the background as a mouse-hero goes to meet his fate in facing down a cat-dragon, possibly getting swallowed whole and killing the cat from the inside in a Heroic Sacrifice. xD
