about

A song about worship.

lyrics

A specter wanders these grey halls
An ethereal being consumes me
Strangled by snakes of a Gorgon:
One cold glance and stone entombs me.

And though you still walk in the flesh,
you glow white at my bedpost.
The God we both detest,
makes us the victim of my Eros.

Are you a child of Jupiter,
Aphrodite, or Lucifer?
In your name I hold this vigil,
and in my skin I carve your sigil.

Taste the flesh of Baphomet;
My skin in dissolves and blood congeals.
I draw stars and I draw circles,
To form your unholy seal.

Will you sell yourself to me like Faust;
have your pretty little heart dismembered?
Your blood: the wine that heals my drouth,
and seals your fate among the embers.

Are you a child of Jupiter,
Aphrodite, or Lucifer?
In your name I hold this vigil,
and in my skin I carve your sigil.
