    Lyrics

    I pace, alone
    In a place for the dead
    Overcome by woe
    And here, I've grown
    So fond of dread
    That I swear it's heaven

    Oh sweet Mary,
    Dressed in gray
    Roll back the stone

    With these words scrawled in a severed hand
    Tears fall like shards of glass that bend
    In rivers, like sinners
    Swept with me to join the damned

    A darkened sky
    The day that laughter died
    Fell swiftly into night
    And stayed within Her sight
    Staring at the knife
    Oh God, how easy now to sacrifice
    My life, to have Her with me

    So farewell to distant thunder
    Those inept stars I've worshipped under
    Fall farther, their Father
    Lies in wait in flames below
    Whilst my love, a blood red flower
    Calls to me from verdant bowers

    Graveside, I cry
    Please save me from this Hell I know

    A darkened sky
    The day that laughter died
    Fell swiftly into night
    And stayed within Her sight
    Staring at the knife
    Oh God, how easy now to sacrifice
    My life, to have Her with me

    An eye for an eye as espied in the bible
    My faith is lost to the burning of idols
    One less cross to press upon the survival
    Of this lorded agony

    And I, (much as I have tried
    To bury Her from mind,
    Fate's tourniquet was tied, when She died...)
    Still sense Her presence so divine
    Lithe arms about my throat
    like pining swans entwined
    Footfalls at nightfall close to mine

    Suicide is a tried and tested formula for release

    I snatch Her whisper like the wind through cedars
    See Her face in every natural feature
    Midst the mist and sleepy hollows of fever...
    With glee deceiving me

    Suicide is a tried and tested formula for release

    I hear Her voice from where the grave defies Her
    Sirensong to sing along, no finer
    Suicide notes, harmonised in a minor
    Strike a chord with misery

    No light nor reef
    No unsinkable of romance keeps me
    Safely from the stormy seas
    Now drowning, resounding
    Death-knells pound my dreams
    Unthinkable to dredge through this
    Listless and lonely winter freeze

    A darkened sky
    This day hereafter dies
    Falls swiftly into night
    And stays within my sight
    Staring at the knife
    Oh God, what ease it was to sacrifice
    My life, to have Her with me

    No more a victim of crusade
    Where souls are strung from moral palisades
    I slit my wrist and quickly slip away...
    I journey now on jewelled sands
    Beneath a moon to Summerlands
    To grace Her lips with contraband
    The blaze once in my veins
