Lyrics

Fleeter even than Mercury
He flies inside the walls he calls his own.
He came hidin' but now I see
He looks like everyone I've ever known
He comes bearin' a sacrifice,
I know him by the rose that's in his hand.
I've been listenin' to his advice,
I heat the words but I can't understand.

His moon mirage is shinin'
Shiftin' the things that he can't endure
But all through the Darkness his pain is pure.
Fleeter even than Mercury
He flies inside the walls he calls his own.
He came hidin' but now I see
He looks like everyone I've ever known
He comes beatin' a sacrifice,
I know him by the rose that's in his hand.
I've been listenin' to his advice,
I hear the words but I can't understand.

His moon mirage is shinin'
Through his veins flows a fool's gold flood
But through the rose in his hand. . . flows blood.
