  1. You get a sense of me, little too late

    But that’s just my nature, mean twist of fate

    I will haunt till the end, might break you down

    Bottom of a bottle, to sink and drown

    "should have done"'s

  2. I did a good bit of googling in my "spare time" today & couldn't find a direct connection between Easter & Eli,

    that all the words will start with E?

  5. Could be the perfect storm

    But no, not either or.

    -- not either or: neither concurrence nor disaster -> separate (expected?) event

    I've plead the fifth before.

    -- not truth: lies
