Shadow of a Doubt

Strange plot

Happened in my memories

Few days ago

Before breakfast

There was a ghost

Classic one

Reminder of something


“What just happened”

To be – ???

One way or another


I definitively don’t remember this happening

No any trace

No sign

And I will not leave this just like it is…

Still here


“One way or another

I’m gonna find ya

I’m gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha…”


John Ford said

“Between the real story and the legend – choose the legend”

Oh well

“just follow your heart…

Try and see, if you can…”

Well, well, well, oh well…

Back on then

I definitively don’t remember this happening

“It took hours and hours but…

I was so involved, I didn’t know what to think…”


I think I repeat lyrics of someone else


And I’m not a great one to sing

Nothing but joyless

Condemnations on memory

Just Scary or scarry but with precise hurry

This creepy “I have to remember this. I have to!”

I want to punch myself for this

Strike the brow! –

One thing I know for sure

There was a treason

Between my memories

It really happened

There was two of them

They’d talked a lot

’cause they were near

And there was not much else to do

So they decided to claim that

There was The Third Man

Lots of pretty lines happened on my forehead

Eyes in the scurry

Is this it?

“There’s too much confusion”

Oh well…”I can’t get no relief…”
