leviathan lyrics – mark lanegan

leviathan

after the deadlock and dazzle
as good as, or better than gold
i lay down my guns on the table
first scarlet, then blue growing cold

black light and smoke
making a joke
in the haze of a setting sun

leviathan waits in the water
skeletons hide in the trees
the hours crawl by like a spider
hangman is following me

at sorrow’s door
a century more
in the rays of a setting sun

after the deadlock and dazzle
glitters at night like it’s gold
you lay down your heart if you’re able
first scarlet, then blue growing cold

everyday a prayer
for what i never knew
but this is one i said for you
