    "The Funeral Portrait" Lyrics

    You wait by the window
    Morning's breath on the sill
    Idle hands given another try
    So you wait and you savour the moment
    Outside the canvas turned white
    Ruby eyes in the fog

    Rain washing clean all the sins
    A liquid gown that covers all
    Your loathe turns endless
    Opened mirage sooths your sense
    Locked on the pinnacle
    The best secret within

    Like a derelict child
    Heart burning for a stranger
    Ascending to the meek
    Flock round the liars in awe

    Caked in the soil beneath
    Fear me when we meet
    Turn away in admiration
    My firm grip round the nucleus of joy

    Enough of this
    You will leave me now
    You will see it now
    Perish at my hands

    Close to you
    Tangled up in hair
    Fresh stigma looks
    Shall I take you with me
    And it is cold
    Ruby eyes in the fog
    It is me

    And you are just like them all
    Stained by the name of fathers
    I'm greeting my downward fall
    Leaving the throes to others
