In some variations of this piece I referred to the lyrics to the song "Virgin Death" (aka "Pentagram"). Back in the days (daze!) there were no printed lyrics available, so I misheard some words. The gist of that first verse is: "Send me home to bust my back / Strap you to your torture rack / Out all night you sleep all day / When we talk I've got no say / There's five black points all chalked up for you / Got five of my own, I hope they'll come through / I'm gonna take you to your virgin death--you're gonna get it." When the song was called "Pentagram" the last line was "My life's a Pentagram!"
