It Takes One

It takes one to know one

A bloodthirst for a bloodlust

To catch a killer with a cold link

You shall do what you must

.

It takes one to find one

A lost cause for a losing side

To find what the devil couldn’t

Let him pick the pace he abides

.

It takes one to capture one

An insane for an ending sanity

Taste his actions, every death

As if he was your own propinquity

.

It takes one to be one

A stagehand for a tugged pulley

A mind is like a flawed machine

A single virus, and you’ll be me

.

It takes one to heal one

A catcher for a falling heart

You’ll try to distance yourself

Yet find we can never be apart

.

It takes one to know one

An apathetic soul for an empathic mind

But without a connection, your lead will be gone

For it takes two madmen to catch one, you’ll find.
