The fog it hung like strips of gauze
Upon the bitter broken trees
Bleeding golden blood
Where I lost you my love
The fleeting, fading light left you
An easy prey for phantom forests
Eating all the lost
The children and the criminals

But beauty left you lonely by
The edge of wood where lantern limbs
Would reach for all the trash
And find out that you didn't wear a mask
And selfish hearts would keep you there
As cannibals would rip and tear your
Clothes from perfect skin
No one could see throughout the dimming din

I got brave and lonesome
For your tailored touch of handsome hands
So sweet your softened stare
Swimming in cerulean
I challenged all the changing life
Of darkness in the naked night
And I found you in the black
With tears and scrapes across your back

As I kissed you on your mossy mouth
The trees began to move the ground
To nothingness below
We were on a shaking pedestal
I held your helpless hand
Just one more time as we held each other's eyes
As we fell asleep
We saw the silky stars before we died

Oh we fall to hell
