We entered Winter once again
‘Neath the lid, all limbs tucked away

Such a tragic sight you are
Spurring me with those tears
I am beyond death
Saving strength now, faint whispers

Night-time consolation, cross the line
Sleep inside through days
In the wake of this relief
Insanity at its peak

You sighed and let me in
Keep the beast inside
Screaming out too late

And paced the trails of sin
Your gaze, covered with virgin snow
It's the shallow deeds who's to blame

Moving into the dim lights
It was worth it for the wait alone
