Inside the doors are sealed to love
Inside the fingers of my glove
Inside it's colder than the stars
Inside the circus of the wind
Inside she'll never hurt me
Inside the compass of the night

Outside the world's still burning
Inside my head's a box of stars I never dared to open
Inside the songs of our defeat, they sing of treaties broken

Outside the drums are calling
Outside they're hammering down the gate
Love is the child of an endless war
Love is a shameless banner unfurled
Love is the fire of the world
A tide of destruction
A violation, a mutilation, capitulation, love is annihilation.
Inside the failures of the light, the night is wrapped around me
Inside we're hidden from the moonlight, we shift between the shadows

Inside the dogs are waking
Inside they're howling down the gate
Love is the child of an endless war
Love is a shameless banner unfurled
Love is the fire at the end of the world
A tide of destruction
The pain of instruction
Love is annihilation.
I climb this tower inside my head
I dream the stairs don't ask me why,

Love me like an ocean; love me like a mother mild
Love me like a sister, love me like the world has just begun
Love me like an innocent, love me like your favorite toy
Love me like a sinner, love me like a dying man.
Annihilate me, infiltrate me,
Mutilate me, inundate me,
Vindicate me, devastate me
Love me like a parasite, love me like a dying sun

Incubate me, recreate me,
Punctuate me, evaluate me,
Designate me, humiliate me,
Calibrate me, replicate me
