    Lyrics

    I'm a priest for the poorest sacrifice
    I'm but a raft in a sea of sorrow and greed
    You bathed in my wine
    Drank from my cup, mocked my rhyme
    Your slit tongues licked my aching wounds

    Put a stake through my heart!
    And drag me into sunlight
    So awake for your greed
    As you're slaying the dreamer

    Swansong for the Wish of Night
    God it hurts, give a name to the pain
    Our primrose path to hell is growing weed

    Put a stake through my heart!
    And drag me into sunlight
    So awake for your greed
    As you're slaying the dreamer

    Blame me, it's me
    Coward, a good-for-nothing scapegoat
    Dumb kid, living a dream
    Romantic only on paper

    Tell me why you took all that was mine!
    Stay as you lay - don't lead me astray!
    Tell me why you took all that was mine!
    Stay as you lay - don't lead me astray!

    Wake up, mow the weed
    You'd be nothing without me
    Take my life if you have the heart to die

    You bastards tainted my tool
    Raped my words, played me a fool
    Gather your precious glitter and leave me be
    The Great Ones are all dead
    And I'm tired, too

    I truly hate you all!
