lyrics

In the backseat while gently teasing
A bird of prey lures her victims
Pain out and into the night
In this windy city you’ll see the siren take flight

We will fly to the masquerade ball
And pretend we belong as we dance to the song of a parakeet
Stringing us along
With his new old guitar
So we won’t feel too far from home

Sharpen your bayonet
This isn’t over yet
A sweet assault, a gentle revolt, hypnotized
By a stranger who’ll make you forget that you’re married to time

Come down to the river tonight
Three queens will be there
Bearing gifts, unaware that you’re not alone
Your heart has been marked
The wild beast has chosen her feast

From a lifetime of sorrow I fled
Just to follow her voice
The voice in my head as I lay alone
In my bones
I could feel her embrace
Pulling me so far from home

Sharpen your bayonet
This isn’t over yet
A sweet assault, a gentle revolt, hypnotized
By a stranger who’ll make you forget that you’re married to time

No tears boy
You paid for the ride
Best do what you’re told, as this crime unfolds
You will understand
When you thought you were the muse
You were simply
This story’s interlude
