cupid of the carrion kind lyrics – flowing tears

there in the dark it’s the only abuse
walking frail to the guardian light
there in the dark where the road is a fuse

and he said…
will you be a light for me
to seduce to elude to grin?
will you be a light for me
walking in for a holy sin?

there in the dark it’s the only abuse
that i can’t get out of his sight
there in the dark it’s the only abuse
when the frail old man he smiles

and he says…
will you be a bride for me
on your knees for a second run?
will you shoot the sky for me
stealing streetlight just for fun?

i cannot see your sun so far away
i cannot be four lightyears far away
i cannot see your sky so far away
i cannot see your light another day

there in the dark –
ten years older and wise
still there’s a frail, frail guardian light
there in the dark – back to preach of the night
see the face of the old man is mine

…gaze of the old man is mine
