"Trap the Mouse" as written by and Charles F. Huot....
She's about to die for dirt cheap
I kill the buzz I hear and go to sleep
Wounded shadows crawling to my feet
Pretty patterns and the same ole' dream
The same ole' dream tells the story

She's the one who tripped upside down
Playing records as for the last time
Trap the mouse before you change your mind
Pretty lady in the sun that shines
The sun that shines; it tells the story

    General CommentThis poor guy is assaulted by sexual abuse which haunts him during wake, night and in his dreams. Even during sleep, he never knows when those dark "shadows of abuse" would creep in, whether in reality or bad dreams. The song seems to reveal his dark thoughts during a time he feels the only way out is to kill the self-absorbed abuser with a cleverly devised plan to turn the tables on and to trap "the mouse" in order to ensnare and kill his “abuser.” He seems conflicted whether to make himself follow through with his plan to kill/stop the abuser, or else just somehow keep living and learning with how to deal with it. He knows the life of the abuser’s live is in his hands, and it’s now or never.
