Burning crosses
On a ******'s lawn
Burning dollars
What's a house without a home?
Dance in your white sheet glory
Dance in your passion
Talk about sugar on the six fingered beast
Conversation about the holes in your hands
Walk through the garden
Of men's desires
Conversation about
The kingdom of fire
What's that moving in the basement?
What's that moving in the attic
Who's that walking in the shadow
Who's that walking in the streets

[Chorus]
Kiss on my hand
After dark
Kiss on my hand
After dark
Kiss on my hand

Romance in sequence
Harmful to the blind
Burning hearts
Through the top of your skull
Dance in your white sheet glory
Dance in your passion
Your days are numbered
With love in your eyes
Love?
Pull down the Sheets
Take off your clothes
Get out of bed
I'm so tired
