Dark Beauty and Desire

"Dark Beauty and Desire" (2003 EP)

1. Dark Beauty and desire
2. Sand and Mercury
3. The Fire Before Me

1. Dark Beauty and desire

My heart aches for the truth in this life
My lips yearn for the taste of the night
My eyes burn with the lust thee advance
My mind bleeds through the bindings of Christ
Midst the dancing candles
She lays there naked
Dark hair and pale white skin
I've cried myself to sleep on the coldest of nights
I've prayed to the sky with the deepest of faith
I've read the verse with nefarious eyes
He's been in your heart, but I've been between your thighs
Take me now, take my soul
In sin we burn
Like wolves we devour
Stand back now, my love
Does he come for us?
With our stained foreheads
God closes his hand
Take them all with you, Lord
To a selfish heaven
Leave us here to rot in bliss
You've made her heart nothing but sick
You've lived your life in agony
Cold, under a blanket of morality
We search for something real
Your body is all I want to feel
Walk with me through the night
Feel my heart beat, make my lips bleed
The faith of which they speak
Leaves the blind to weep
Though I'd be a fool to see this belief
She is all I want
Faint with desire
Lose me in thy rapture
Prepare thyself
For God dies tonight

2. Sand and Mercury

[Words by William Blake from the poem, "Ah! Sunflower"]

Ah! Sunflower.
Weary of time
Who countest
The steps of the sun
Seeking after that
Sweet golden clime
Where the traveler's
Journey is done
Where the youth
Pined away with desire
And the pale virgin
Shrouded in snow
Arise from their graves
And aspire
Where my sunflower
wishes to go

3. The Fire Before Me

So vague, yet so eloquent
That taken from your idiom
All that time you have mused
Yet so little is realized
From your verse, coquettish
Though I speak for myself, I am not aroused
Rise above their mirth, my girl
The wine is poison, you see?
Though it is all that you need
Pour it on the barren heath
Faith portrays a belief
Her life before me
My life she gave me
A prayer in nightmarish verse
Burning faith you can't see
With haunting auguries, I sleep in lunacy
The time you search for is not
No clock can measure the length of my pain
Misery makes a splendid second hand
So here you come, Jesus Christ
Indolent One!
My mother would die for you
If you don't kill her first
I don't want to cry for her
I don't want to cry out to you
The air seems so dry today
Heat is all I feel
As the smoke blankets the sky
And sadness undresses my eyes
I choke on the embers of devotion
For days I saw that fire
Watching their lives burn
Smelling their hope
I knew you'd send no rain
God, was it not enough they believed?
I don't want to cry out to you
As they did
