Once again as Death roams on the aisles of New Orleans
But this time there’s no victims of floods or hurricanes
It knows the streets are empty, it takes it’s time to come
Dancing toward the music, soulful rolling of the drum

Blue notes in moonlight become so bright, they lead his way
Drawing closer to the rhythms of the beats they play
Patrons, they all fall silent like they’ve received bad news
The blackened robe falls to the floor revealing dancing shoes
Isn’t it a pleasant surprise?
It isn’t just a clever disguise
And Death becomes a dance
