       I still remember that one lonesome night, when the moon was swollen and ready to burst. When we sat under an old trembling tree and smoked cigarette after cigarette until the pack was empty. You said to me, "Life is nothing but a spiral staricase and we are descending into death. Twists and turns and ups and downs, it doesn't matter once you reach the bottom."

    These rusting gates
    they cut into my paling wrists.
    These gravestones burnt into my brain
    trail down the hills in turns and twist.
    And my lover is just a wilting flower
    set upon the crumbling stone.
    And my lover is waiting in the stars
    watching as I descend below.

    My tears could slick the marble floor
    and my eyes look just like glass.
    Stained in bloody crucifixion
    and my smile is nothing but a mask.

    An actor for the rotting gazes
    Splitting backs and aching stone
    A dance for the eternity
    Broken reflections so I'm never alone

    My blood could slick the marble floor
    Desecration's finally passed
    Stained in angelic virgin's faces
    Running into shards of glass

    And my lover is dressed in ivy leaves
    Twisted around his waning glow
    And my lover is bathed in sheer moonlight
    Falling with the grace of snow
