    Black flowers, please

    Oh when I saw you standing there
    Wild flowers dying in your hair
    Child of harvest time coughing up must
    Black flowers' dull perfume trailing in dust
    Hoisting dark pennants at the spike of the hill
    Your smile started bleeding and then the mill
    Shearing and sharing your love and your rage
    Whilst hawk's head descending
    Spewed out a new age

    It isn't very good
    In the dark dark wood
    In the middle of the night
    When there isn't any light

    There are four corners to the world she said
    And every one is manned with fire and ice
    Through black glass darkly I can see her truth
    Arrayed and raised and raising walls of war
    She points to squares of wax and writes backwards
    I veil my face from her and from her light
    The pointless games she plays out for want of power
    To slake her bloodlust and for sake of pain
    Her ugly shapes breeding in her secret mound
    The Call of Aethyrs and the Dog Star Crawl
    There's one cracked bottle with no label on
    She nods and gestures limply with her broken smile
    Do you fear death she says to me
    And shows me seven stars
    The seven seals of her seven years of Rose Cross madness
    Well christus tell us that little children suffer
    It's only right that we should learn to suffer too!

    The first seven are red as blood
    The second seven not so red
    The third seven like whitish smoke
    And all the world seemed to be in darkness
    And all the world seemed to be in brightness

    There are four corners to the world I lie
    In forms of fire have lurked across its floor
    And little banners displaying their little creeds
    Have made our season on earth as red as poppy fields

    There are four corners to the world she sighs
    There are four corners to the world she cries
    There are four corners to the world she lies
    There are four corners to the world she dies
