in effigy lyrics – most precious blood

you’ve watched me die for the final time
this bloodsoaked eulogy that at last is mine
but ive thought this through as i waited for you
to carry me home in your lifeless arms
wait for sleep to grant me this serenity i seek
solace can only be found in everlasting sleep
how can i fear death?
i’ll never feel it
i want to die before you
i want to die for you
but i’ll never feel it
tonight the circle closes indefinitely
burn my cold heart in effigy
empty my pockes for the thieves
life has run me through
as i waited for you o carry me home in your lifeless arms
burn my heart in effigy
