    Lyrics

    The moon, she hangs like a cruel portrait
    Soft winds whisper the bidding of trees
    As this tragedy starts with a shattered glass heart
    And the mid-nightmare trampling of dreams

    But oh, no tears please
    Fear and pain may accompany death
    But it is desire that shepherds its certainty
    As we shall see

    She was divinity's creature that kissed in cold mirrors
    A queen of snow, far beyond compare
    Lips attuned to symmetry sought her everywhere
    Dark liquored eyes, an Arabian nightmare

    She shone on watercolors of my pond life as pearl
    Until those who couldn't have her, cut her free of this world

    That fateful eve when the breeze stank of sunset and camphor
    Their lanterns chased phantoms and threw
    An inquisitive glance, like the shadows they cast
    On my love picking rue by the light of the moon

    Putting reason to flight or to death is their way
    They crept through woods mesmerized
    By the taffeta ley of her hips that held sway
    Over all they surveyed save a mist on the rise
    A deadly blessing to hide her ghost in the fog
    They raped and left, five men of God, her ghost in the fog

    Dawn discovered her there beneath the cedar's stare
    Silk dress torn, her raven hair flown to gown her beauty bared
    Was starred with frost, I knew her lost
    I wept 'til tears crept back to prayer

    She'd sworn me vows in fragrant blood
    "Never to part, lest jealous Heaven stole our hearts"
    Then this I screamed ,"Come back to me
    For I was born in love with thee
    So why should fate stand in between?"

    And as I drowned her gentle curves
    With dreams unsaid and final words
    I espied a gleam trodden to earth
    The church bell tower key

    The village mourned her by goodbye
    For she'd been a witch, their men had longed to try
    And I broke under Christ seeking guilty signs
    My tortured soul on ice

    A queen of snow, far beyond compare
    Lips attuned to symmetry, sought her everywhere
    Trappistine eyes, an Arabian nightmare
    She was Ursuline possessed of a milky white skin
    My porcelain yin, a graceful Angel of sin

    And so for her the breeze stank of sunset and camphor
    My lantern chased her phantom and blew
    Their chapel ablaze and all locked in to a pain
    Best reserved for judgment that their Bible construed

    Putting reason to flight or to flame unashamed, I swept from cries
    Mesmerized by the taffeta ley of her hips that held sway
    Over all those at bay, save a mist on the rise
    A final blessing to hide, her ghost in the fog
    And I embraced where lovers rot, her ghost in the fog
    Her ghost in the fog, her ghost in the fog
