"Shoeshine For Neptune" as written by and Cameron Clayton Reed Remi James Rodberg....
Driving down the road I hear the radio
And your muffled screams through the backseat
I just made your shoes but they need to be
Cleaned for meet-and-greet
So classic, so smooth
As you sedated me
I slipped a little something into your drink
A potion, more like a poision
I tell you as you drive on

Brake lights shine through black
They reveal the burial plot
One last kiss before your final send-off

You take my final breaths
Thrust them into the ocean
Cement shoes, I shall become one with death

The air bubbles start to surface
A sensation of satisfaction sweeps over my entire body
Content with the done deal
The taste of this victory is almost to much for me

Don't you forget I killed you
With my death that I home-brewed
As I sink down I remember what the sea king said
"You die here"

The chemicals begin to mix
Vision begins to blur
I fall to my knees
I am my own victim

I was meant this way, either way
You tapped my phones, I made the setup
It was meant to be neptune's plan
No fate involved

    General Commenti think it's about two lovers who conspire to kill eachother. he has her tied up and throws her into the ocean with cement shoes and she poisons his drink. kind of a hamlet- like story.

    General Commenthe tricks his girlfriend into going on a "normal" ride with him, when he kills her and he is so happy in a sick way of mocking himself, he drowns himself aswell. "it was meant to be neptunes plan" he thinks that he was supposd to die too..


    much as the poem "anabell Lee" by edgar allen poe, except in the song, the girl is murdered, and does not die from pneumonia

    General Commentok nevermind, as i review it, he killed his girlfriend by drowning her and then he says "i am my own victim" he misses her and he finds himself happy about it and just finds himself grieving over the death "he home brewed"

    General CommentFrom my interpretation a man decides to kill his wife, He sedates her with a drink and ties her up. While she is tied up he begins making the cement, "her shoes." He is going to throw her into the ocean. Neptune is the god of the sea, so he is referred to as god. His plan all along is for both of them to die. While the man plans her death he must have talked to someone because it speaks of his phones being tapped so while she is being sedated she slips a poison into his drink. After he kills her the chemicals begin to mix, meaning the poison begins to take effect. He becomes his own victim. By killing his wife he caused her to kill him.
