lyrics

You,
Slanted hip,
Like a house built on a swamp
Your naked skin white washed
Glowed anemia
Torches licked the temple walls,
Crackled in the midnight glade
You ,
The priestess, clammy hands,
Led strangers away from their serenade
And in the orange haze
The idols changed
Expressions at the sight of the service

You're damned

Incense rose,
The entrance closed,
The panting and sighing grew louder
All the while,
Ardor riled,
Abandon shook the profane altar

"

And I from my armchair pulpit,
Continuing to preach,
That you'll burn
For what you did,
Beyond mercy's reach
Excommunicate,
Denied the sacraments
Of affection
Left to be buried
In the barren land of the pagan

But last night the full moon set
On the horizon of a lover's chest
Who I never promised anything to
Yet love's expected none the less
Apartment wall burst like a libertine's spleen
Street lights blinded with triune chalk fingers
Wrote all over
Ever surface
"You'd better hide your finger"
