The Rumour Said Fire – Sanctuary lyrics

Everyone is leaving here all wounded by the heart
All waiting for Moses
Take me home again
You told me in the sand
Look at the real
Oh world of steel
And the flowers all bend into sanctuaries

In the nighttime when she dreams of flawless skin
Dreams the nature of man like a solid sculpture
Like a crow leaves all behind for a prey you crouch and find
That in the end of it he crawls for your womb
Sanity I need you now that I'm taking it apart
Love's not a deer
Keep it real
And you couldn't keep a secret even if you wanted to choose
Your eyes aren't clear
Your eyes aren't clear
In the subway you relate to all the colours
The translation of your moves
And you seek to find
You just need to find anyone
And the flowers all bend into sanctuaries

In the nighttime when she dreams of your bodies spin
You are the nature of sin so put your heart into it
Like a crow leaves all behind for the symbol of nature's child
It eats my heart like this
And from my heart like a veil runs the blood
"You're extraordinary..."
"With your astral lungs"
"You're playing it harder than most"
"Please kill me sensually with your black toys and your astral smile."
