Lyrics

I live in darkness, darling
Faith is that rite
True, others bade me past others
Then fell from my scales
Revisit Christ's decision
There's edict and there's force
Yet, no set course
Will gilt a soul on its way back out

Four years of sorrow
I've turned and turned and turned amends
I fear as much, it's easy
Or hearts sink low with you where a
Heart's shone through
Oh, if I was that carpenter I'd love you, baby
What's faithless, the faithless prove
From treasures since unrivaled
And cities on the wane no masked man came
To frighten off and slate the moths disused

On pain of some deliverance I chanted rain
Rosettes of embered failings
Refuse to douse
Inhibit me of free-saying
If I'll vanquish same and sooth
Oh, apt due
For Lily'd ghosts on their way back out

Four years of sorrow
I've slung and slung and flung amends
I fear as much, it's easy
Or hearts sink low with you
Where a heart's shone though
Oh, if I was that carpenter I'd love you, baby
What's faithless, the faithless prove
From pleasures since upended
And sailors hear the tills of woe
No path I will
Has ever showed but who I am
Has ever showed but who I am
Has ever showed but who I am
