And I Walk With Them
A Serpent it came to me
Right before my eyes
I looked to God way above me
He looked down at my lies
I said "oh Lord please help me
I am on my knees"
"Your path is yours" he told me
"Yours to reap"
An unfortunate journey
Through a bleak sea of loneliness
I carved through the waves of grief
In a black vastness of self doubt
I have never felt so alone
So pitiful and wretched and low
I'm tried by a terrible wind
The misery and the pains blow
I Cannot Be Loved
Lover put a knife in my hand
Lay down right there, that's my command
Do as I say in this blood play
Claw at my skin, I'll let you win
Caress your flesh. Burns like fire
Rosey, sweet breath, and your desire
Your skin is all I want to take from you
Your mind is nought unto me,
I'll leave behind
The honey of romance, so sweet for us
Through swaying grass we run in arms, just us
The honey of romance, our treat to us
These arms I fold around you.
It's just us.
Your charms so rare
My flesh laid bare
In arms we dare
One Of Beauty's Daughters -
Your name will walk the years of shame
Your hands, my face, the look, the taste
To gaze how fondly on thy beautiful face
To fold thee in my great arms, my dark embrace
In my arms I comforted her, and she looked up at me
Weep did she and tried to escape.
My mind she did read
I held her face in my hands and winked my eye
The Blood, The Wine, The Roses
Everyone knows her, knows her name.
Deadly Siren, that's her game
They want to be near her.
Playing her game
Get to know her.
What's her name?
She strides among us with a burning fire.
Her victims endless, piling higher
And I run along with them, the heaving mass, fighting anyone to get past
Thy Raven Wings
In fiery flight we would leave this hall
The Holy house, House of God will fall
To death they go with music and song
But our dread simply must go on
I feel our need to feed goes on
For our greed, watch them bleeding on
This hour's ours, with open arms go on
Crowned with thorns and pain was he
To Remain Tombless
The weary creak of my bones
Exhausted voice, deathly tones
Arms of lead, skin drawn tight
No long a princely sight
Face is gaunt, pale & thin
Bent and grate and full of sin
Pass to me
Wine and song
For I'll be
