“Gilded Lily”

You’ve taken all you can from me
This crystal tear is all remains
An empty shell discarded now
You can have that as well
It’s no use to me now

You snared me with a false impression
Gilded lily stole my soul
Turned to morbid fascination
Still I couldn’t break away
Mesmerised by your intentions
My thoughts in disarray

You new exactly what you were doing
You played me like a steel guitar
Spun me out in y’r webs of fever, ‘n till at last
You drained my soul blood dry

You snared me with a false impression
Gilded lily stole my soul
Turned to morbid fascination
Still I couldn’t break away
Mesmerised by your intentions
My thoughts in disarray

When I met you the summer sun was
Fading like the autumn breeze
Trapped inside y’r growing winter
Y’r vampire touch brings frozen death to me

You snared me with a false impression
Gilded lily stole my soul
Turned to morbid fascination
Still I couldn’t break away
Mesmerised by your intentions
My thoughts in disarray
