lyrics

I was born in blood underneath a full moon.
and I tried to love the God you put in my face but it was just a wound.
You said, "Listen to what he said underneath the cross he bared!"
but I'm no fool, there's always 2. Light and dark...and both leave a mark!

I'm not good! I don't claim to be bad but sometimes it gets the best of me. My eyes shine. The end of brilliance in a pale beauty!

I was born under a black flag!
Washed ashore, where the soul passed.
There ain't no coming back.....

Memories flood.
Dead ancient lovers that can't ever love again.
I'll meet you half way across the bedroom and slide my hand on the cross. Don't say a word as we watch the "Light" thin on the walls.
Where it's so cold. Watch the breath as you move it'll make you whole.
At least there's some feeling at all when they come.
It's all I ever want.

I'm not good! I don't claim to be bad but sometimes it gets the best of me. My eyes shine. The end of brilliance in a pale beauty!

I was born under a black flag!
Washed ashore, where the soul passed.
There ain't no coming back.....
There ain't no coming back.....

Listen to what he said underneath the cross he bared!

I was born under a black flag!
Washed ashore, where the soul passed.
There ain't no coming back.....
