For too long I’ve been away
I stand at these dawn-lit doors
Aching for sweaty entrance
Falling with slippery grace

Too long I've been forced to dream
Of floating on cotton sheets
Stretching out against these walls
Rolling within naked bliss

Up and down these halls I creep
Deeper into into the darkness
Lies the tomb of Israel
Inch by inch I rise from dead

A gift
Lips pressed to neck
Your pitiful thirst
Bottomless pit of sad
Drink until heart is lifted

Will you receive my touch
A loveless stranger's hand

Falling flightless carcass
Butterfly with no wings

Prove that you can revive
Gift a breath that propels

Both night and day shine grey
Yet lust burns bright as sun

Please run this way and fall
Let my call pierce your chest

Will you receive my touch
When I reach for your heart

December fever again
Death bells are louder this time
Like two dozen eggs plus half
Has the last one hatched and lives
Big lucky number thirty
Birthday or victory cake

December fever again
My heart seems colder this time
Gentle night slowly sipping
Tears from its usual cup
At this fireplace I sit
Aching and needing your warmth

December fever again
I do need your love this time
Life is a struggle uphill
Now help me to make the climb
Bathe me in milk and honey
Sweet lovely who heals like nurse

You're my everything
You're heaven sent
Let our bodies sing
Bright melodies
You're my everything
You're heaven sent
Let our love now ring
Bright melodies

You've done it now
I'm touched by god
I'm so hypnotized
By bright melodies
I can see it now
You're heaven sent
I'm so hypnotized
By these melodies

Love songs from the darkness
Candles floating in black
Dracula's feast
I've come for healing dear tender woman

Surrender your kindness
Take your position here
I can feel it
Heaven knows it
Bodies interlocked like beast and prey

Such a beautiful corpse
Face barely poking the light
Floating candles
Desperate eating
Is it possible you've filled the hunger

Taste of mother earth
Her burnt burgundy
In a sea of green and gold
The daisies are watching
Cocky entrance
I fell into a hole
That sweet darkness devoured
Body and soul

Blood diffused with bliss
Like a traveler
My fingers walk
These sunkissed hills
