The stars on the horizon Five i see them and count They line up like a row of heads And i fall into their depths Of water, water everywhere Oh, let me fall into you Let me sleep long and quiet God watches all sparrows fall Both fall, and thanks The cat is dead Thank you, a worthwhile thing to pray Loud and often So sleepy silent That small bubble my dream Burst last night It was bloodfull So full, that when it split I was blinded Those with feelings, wondrous kind Our love with kittens ever bind

And clicking your fingers for a Gothic twilight That actually existed just in your head Your fingernails painted black Or bloodred I forget And your fake-leather volumes Jabbering on hell "Manifest Decadence" was what you hoped to exhale Your eyes tried so hard to glitter A StarSnuffing Black So you opened your books And you opened your legs And so opened your heart And let in the badness You claimed As your friend With un-angels hovering Like flies round the ordure That had covered your soul Their empire increasing And your country Deserted by yourself The bells of St. Mary call us to remember That life is with end And the gestures can kill us Moreover destroy And there is one Judgement only Your letters came daily In French or in German But they meant to me nothing I caught the slow chords And dry ice fogging your mind I see all too clearly now Why you chould be discarded And though I could pray for you I probably shan't Having had my cup filled up With your lies And your makeup You were nothing Thinking you're something And nonetheless I still sing this Gothic Love Song A sign to myself And the memory of my past I still sing this Gothic Love Song And the memory of my past And a way to shut out your face
