lyrics

the lilies of the valley make my harem
sing me sorry to sleep
and bathe me in tears
once held for original sin

heavy heads only see me lie
adrift on tempting grass while
waiting in want for a hope
that my feet sprout wings

mournful beds, bitter sheets
breed likewise dreams
in a haze a liar, through a veil a fiend
half-assed believer, a poisonous preacher

heavy heads only see me lie
adrift on tempting grass while
waiting in want for a hope
that my feet sprout wings

to say I came to sing would be the biggest lie
and the number one reason why
I’m doomed to breathe
towards bells storm can’t ring

heavy heads only see me lie
adrift on tempting grass while
waiting in want for a hope
that my feet sprout wings

in a haze a liar
through a veil a fiend
it’s hard to breathe under water
it’s hard to kill mirror monsters
