Your catacomb heart
That weary nest of pain
Footsteps follow in the dark
Whispering your name

The ruins of an empire
Bones rattle on the hill
Where a flame lit in vain
Did shine for the last time

Still we’ll hunt the light

The stars conspire
To lead us away
Let the pillars fall
And the garden burn
The kids have to learn

Our bodies levitate
Float through space
This was never yours
The past is erased

Still we’ll hunt the light
And all of the days
That were stolen away
Only to pass us by
Still we’ll hunt the light

The glass is empty
And your hands are tied
The stars are spies
Singing you to sleep

On a bed of razors
White thighs pull apart
Your voice in my ear
Yeah, your voice so sweet

Still we’ll hunt the light
Live in the days
That were stolen away
