Seems to represent the light source well
And seem to be at peace
That’s pulling me into this
And the shades of the lamps are woven red
Anointing all forgotten forms
And haunt this place
Pulling it near to their swelling breasts
And beats within their virgin chests
From wanton hearts that would seduce
Embracing those who might have moved
From vials black and thick with steam
Would leave you drunk inside this dream

Tasting the skin of a foreign girl
And she ties your hands with a string of pearls
As she closes in and captures you to place you
So once you’re safe inside, she might let you out
But its always night and there is no moon
And you’re not sure if you want to be
And you lay with her
And it’s awful sweet
