    Lyrics

    Horses are riding into her arms
    She lost her own way years ago
    Her sister calls her from the far side of night
    And she falls with that call

    It's the only way out
    She tells me I love you
    But it's only a game
    So she slides through the silence
    She's fixing her time
    To fall back into darkness
    Again with a smile
    Don't touch me I'm falling
    She laughs in the night
    Don't touch me I shall return
    When the wheel comes around
    You see we're all born to suffer
    We're all born to fall
    In a grey-shaded world
    That calls us to zero

    Her mother's mouth slits
    Her father lies taken
    She touches my body
    But I crouch up to die
    Down the ramblas we're walking
    In Reykjavik we're talking
    The snow is moon-cold
    The roof freezes over
    She's reading a book
    She finished it years ago
    She's tearing up paper
    She's tearing up life
    But she only starts thinking
    When her blood is brown

    Gold is the colour she promised me she'd wear
    But Christ's blood turns black
    His body she bears
    When she dips him in waters
    Confession of faith
    It's hard to believe you
    When you spit in my face
    And I don't want to touch you
    I don't want to lie
    In the brown red gold slumber
    That you've taken to ride

    I remember I was thinking
    Only of you
    But you shattered me nightly
    You broke all your oath
    I found myself falling
    And there
    And there
    And then
    Through the ruins of this parched life
    And the pain of the next one
    I said fucking over
    All of this is shit
    But still the wind calls
    Imperium

    When you rage at the conqueror you only rage at yourself
    When you torture the anointed you torture yourself
    And you've listened to Piaf but not to the Christ
    So you sparkle for seconds then dissolve into mist
    The fog closes in and you think about Crowley
    You think it's a game
    But the game is just you
    When shall you stop hiding in the heart of your night
    When the cold trapway beckons
    When the cold trapway stops
    And Christ I was thinking of your bended arm
    It's blue on the inside
    It's blue on the outside
    You said and then buckled as if you might die
    There's no point in living
    There's no point in life

    And sometimes I hear you at the back of my mind
    And a golden door opens but no light appears
    There's spit on the bridle and there's blood on the saddle
    And you slip in the shit you've shat in yourself
    And Christus is Equus and Equus is Lord
    And his name flies with fury and the wind cuts through you
    You following footsteps that shed by a flower
    Then I wanted to hold you but you're destined to fall
