lyrics

Call to the widow
I was a liar
I held my tongue and this desire in my shaking hand
Call to the widow
Punish the liar
I hear her voice in the winds of a foreign land

But I don't believe this to be true
In this room
This view
Oh it begs my dear

You won't have remove our pride
But it'll be easier if you set it aside
I want you
You won't have to forget this my love
But it'll keep you at ease with that guilt from above
I want you

Climb out the window
Swing from the wires
We'll set the fires as the hourglass is shifting sand
Under the willow
I had a brother
Cut off his arm because no one ever shook his hand

But how can I identify with this man?
In the dark
The lament
It draws you in

You won't have to reveal where we hide
Just take slow, steady breathes; they can't hear us inside
I want you
You won't have to forget this my love
But it'll keep you safely hidden from the light up above
I want you

Don't worry baby how the deed gets done
This anxious feeling that you have is half of the fun
I want you
You won't have to forget this my love
We will keep it alive with everything we're made of
I want you

The silhouette of a figure
In the doorway
Point your gaze to the distance
The son of envy shall be reborn
