Holler at ‘em down these hallowed halls

From the song "Tables and Chairs"

Playing for Keeps




“You do know this game is usually played by children, in a swimming pool, instead of a pitch-black cathedral?”


“It’s just…” Mark shrugged. “When you said I could challenge you to a game for my soul, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind.”

The Devil paused. “You would have preferred hide-and-seek?”

“Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of chess, or Go.”

An ominous chuckle reverberated around the sanctum. “What, and give you a fair shot at winning? Besides…”

Mark screamed when the heavy hand grabbed his shoulder. “This gets a much better reaction.”
