This crooked house for crooked folk
Secrets are silent, yet are spoke
Its crooked values are the yolk
For crooked dreams that they invoke

This crooked life for crooked men
Completes a cycle, starts again
The dearest enemies talk as friends
So crooked liars make amends

This crooked place for crooked souls
With evil plans and putrid goals
Gives crooked players crooked roles
The ancient bell, so crooked, tolls

This crooked parlour for crooked friends
Where infamy will darkly trend
With crooked wealth they flagrant, spend
Where crooked folk meet crooked ends
