This will be my storm to defeat You will dance in black snow and misery
To the sound of carnivals I wash the rust away from you And with your golden skin You steal all the glow from the sun What world lies beyond the smoke As the dust settles on our clothes They slid their envelopes Neath our door just to see me twitch
Wake up, my hands are tied to a girl and her corroded soul By god I think I know her, by smile, by name She lays puzzles with a broken mirror. Makes a picture of a factory I try to slit my throat with my pillow to feel what she feels
I try to touch myself... I can still hear, I can still smell their passion What numbness pass through my veins, no lust, no shame... They used to be so brave... Do you recall, do you remember anything? We played a bold messiah... Do you believe, do you pretend to be anything?
All my life I have seen your face And the end is always near, here with you
I saw you lose your ground in a marvelous black and white On the tiles I write you down like a scar painted hologram This room will pass you by as you hang yourself in the draft With your needle halfway in, what else will you take from me?
Wake up, your hands are tied, and the wars that you fought forgotten And the beauty of the slaughter escapes you, your mind is tried They whisper in the voice of your blood, of the day when you will save them all See me leaning on the windowpane to feel what you feel
Come make my soul as your soul, be the machine, be the cruel fight for beauty What numbness pass through your veins, all lust, no name... We are the wildest of them, you cannot die, I cannot see you dancing We've lived our lives in anguish, I cannot move, you cannot flee this horrid place...
I paint myself a mouth with which to kiss you Your abstinense! no city shall ever burn here You cant sear me, I play with the cold horizon And please myself and watch you when you are sleeping A child once wept at the sight of your milkwhite body
You will return to me from the hallway and from the dream Why are you afraid my love? This is the grave you have dug for yourself I watch you melt away while you die in your masquerade This world will pass you by to a song trailing down from above...
