Across a thousand blades (2007 mix)

lyrics

angel, why am i so blind?
angel, why am i so blind?

the room: sweat pouring, eastern incense, warm red embers within amber flesh
slithering naked across a thousand blades, across a thousand blades

i hold you gently, your eyes so far away: searching for your justice, searching for your innocence
lost as a child adrift on a lonely sea, on a lonely sea
slithering naked across a thousand blades, across a thousand blades

burn my memory, burn my outline, the tears scream to scar your unpierced flesh
shattered mirrors reflecting back your face: “let your defenses fall.”
your candle never burned me, the ashes fall to the ground…
your candle never burned me, the ashes fall to the ground…

burn my memory, burn my outline, the tears scream to scar your unpierced flesh
shattered mirrors reflecting back your face: “let your defenses fall.”
as you try to pierce my poisoned flesh, as i try to pierce your tortured heart
as you try to pierce my poisoned flesh, as i try to pierce your tortured heart
