    Lyrics

    Led to other worlds
    By the girls she curled within
    I took their skins to see her
    Be my mannequin

    Be my mannequin
    I cannot remember
    How it was that we first met
    Curve of moon and haunted shore
    The stars were not those heaven sent

    Did we come together
    At masked palatial balls
    In silks and flesh and leather
    Or did we come at all?
    I dreamt a midnight castle
    The eerie song of wolves
    And eyes that danced with fire
    As they have forever more

    Our rites of sin
    Have long fathered a hymn
    To burden him
    Whom by slip of after whim
    At genesis
    Dressed her like the wind
    In autumn gowns
    That pinned her down
    To be my mannequin

    Be my mannequin
    Always poised on winter
    But never would she break
    My lovecraft and black witch heart
    That pounded in her wake

    We kissed on distant balconies
    A law unto her own
    Thirteenth dark commandment
    Of figures pressed to stone
    Turning cream with fantasies
    That God alone would know
    We graced vomitorium
    With the sweet excess of rome

    Flagrant in the past
    Our names were deeply carved on the tree of life in long dead languages

    Led to other worlds
    By the girls she curled within
    I took their skins to see her
    Be my mannequin

    Be my mannequin
    I tongued the nuns at louviers
    But not one word possessed
    Her divine right, an archetype
    For mortal goddesses...
