From the album Midnight Blue

Lyrics

There are spiders on my face
They are moving in the space
Between each breath, so far apart
Like the whispers of my heart

There are pictures in my mind
Fleeting glimpses, broken time
Voices calling from the sea
Where fog is rolling over me

Leave me by the gate
Where all the sinners wait
To learn of God and fate
And nothing more
Leave me by the door
Where all the rich are poor
And dream of love and hope
And nothing more

There are serpents round my arms
Green and yellow, pulling down
Take my blood and squeeze my bones
Snakes of sorrow, snakes of stone

There's a yearning in my soul
Fires burning, empty holes
Read my mind before I fall
Love is timeless, love is all

Leave me by the gate
Where all the sinners wait
To learn of God and faith
And nothing more
Leave me by the keep
Where all the soldiers sleep
And dream of endless peace
On distant shores

There are shadows on my eyes
Shuttered windows, covered blinds
I don't see the setting sun
Shadows lengthen, then they're gone
