Katrinah Josephina is no longer so they say
She disappeared one year ago and not a trace remains
All the theories are just hearsay as to why she disappeared,
Some say she was abducted and some say she drowned in fear.
And what a joy it is to be the only one who knows,
Katrinah Josephina journeys 90 leagues below.
She's singing the praises of angels and sages.
(Oh when the pills wear off, the symptoms will return)
(You may have found relief - the cause has still yet to be learned.)

As a child she was quite mystified in searching for the soul,
So with spade in hand she soon began to dig a little hole.
One league and 15 years she ventured down her tunneled plight,
And was greeted by a troupe of dancing demons stanced to fight.
Each demon bid her, "Say our names, as our names you should know,
But til such time your chains will bind us follow where you go!"
And what a joy it is to be the only one who knows
Katrinah Josephina soon identified her foes!
Yes she's still singing the praises of angels and sages.
(Oh when the pills wear off, the demons will return)
(Unless you're brave enough to face the ruler of their world.)

After years upon the surface higher learning taught her well,
That the value of the human soul's a dollar earned in hell.
So one year ago upon this night she dragged me to her hole,
Her waist was roped, "Don't dare let go!" Her voice resounded from below...

Keep singing the praises of angels and sages.
'Cause when the pills wear off...

    General CommentWell it's obviously a fictional story. I think it may have something to do with schizophrenia, but that's just a hunch.
    Awesome song, love the use of a cappella
