The fair one with another's eyes upon her
The fair one with another's lips awaiting hers
And she'll beckon you by offering her kindest face
And the future glows so brightly towards her horizon

You feel so forceful and strong
When she's close to you

The pale one with another's eyes upon her
The pale one with the lips of another's melting waste
And the future bleeds black through her bottomless eyes
And your life drains slowly downward through her watery smile

You feel so mortal and small
When she's close to you

Falling, rolling, effortless and ceaseless
Choose Her and she may bare you to her Demons
Hell hath the fury of her every Reflection
And the lives you've lost can't be restored through redemption.

You feel so shameful and hurt
When she's close to you

Sing Hope She may pull you down

Trance Vision Thrilling Impression
Belief Choice Perception Perfection
Bedazzle Bewilder Stupor Sedation
Ambition Induction Awareness Awaken
Struggle Rejection Aversion Destruction
Clarity Dignity Ruin Depression
Grief Regret Contrition Redemption


from Naiades, released January 1, 2012
