lyrics

Make your enemies, make them fast
Grow your poisonous trees to last
Spread your doom about the room
Give your dirge a place to bloom

All your venomous, vicious prayers
Won’t bring reckoning anywhere
Not at the abbey, not with the wives
Not at the fugue state of our lives

And in time we both will come to feel ashamed
Of every revelry we felt compelled to claim

When we were young, we couldn’t wait
To take our turn and savage our fate
I brace myself whenever we seem
To share our shade and drink the same dream

I am gentle because I’m strong
And you are wicked because you’re wrong
Wrong about beauty, wrong about hell
Wrong about the girls who make me well

And in time we both will come to feel ashamed
Of every revelry we felt compelled to claim
