Damian bares his teeth, appraises the situation. He ain't leaving here alone tonight. Here comes the metaphor: The dancefloor is an ocean. The songs are storms and the bodies all floating, waiting for a rescue but i don't think he's the rescue dude.

Damian, a shark on two feet
Damian would fuck you in a heartbeat
Damian is probably a problem
Damian, partially inhuman

So we move to some metalcore dirge and Damian knows most of the words. Metaphor got drowned by the second verse. I'd kinda lost interest but I guess the bar was the beachfront. I scored a tiny parasol and a party blunt. Watched the grey fin cross the water, less a savior, more a slaughterer.

Damian would fuck you in the toilets
Damian, a shark on two legs
Damian is probably a problem
Damian, partially inhuman

lets say the cab rank is the airport sky cos all our friends are going, getting high

Damian : "nobody loses, man"
Damian doesn't do rejection
Damian : "well nobody's forcing them"
Damian, wat u tryna prove fam

Damian, oh Damian, whatever you believe in
Damian, oh Damian, all our friends are leaving now
