about

I will be your slave.

lyrics

You tease me from a cloud.
I'm buried too deep.
Then I'm tumbling out,
fleeing the scene.
If I was impatient,
the I would explore.
Then I'd fall in softly.
But instead I ignore.

Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
But memory serves me well
Time and time again
Time and time again

What happened anyway?
I thought you would be so proud.
But it's fleeting me now can't get the words out my mouth, its a tyranny I can't describe.
It triggers a warning: the moon at your feet.
Succumb to my calling, alone and in need.

Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
But memory serves me well
Time and time again
Time and time again

And I know you'll be haunted,
and your eyes will be glazed.
Spill the poison I've been dreaming of
let your mind decay.

Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
But memory serves me well
Time and time again
Time and time again
Even when the lights go out
I will be your slave
I will be your slave
