Circle VII: Sins of the Lion

Album: A Place Where The Sun Is Silent (2011)
  • All the lions

    The ocean beckons with its gaze
    Pulling me beneath the waves
    The fury I search is now gone

    All the lions

    It's calling at my burning skin
    Till I wash away the sin
    It's washed away
    Am I the first to be fooled by
    Your dirty little trick?
    I guess I should have seen this coming
    I will not forget, I will not forget
    It's washed away

    I'm the one who has to swallow water
    That's what I get for chasing after (you)
    You should be hanging by your neck
    Hanging there silently

    I can't stop the bleeding
    Tell me that you want me (if you need me)
    Tell me that you love me (if you want me)
    Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
    Tell me that you want me (do you want me?)
    Tell me do you want me (do you love me?)

    It is quite clear you despise me
    By showing your face here
    And you never even told me
    Why you disappeared
    Why you disappeared
    It's washed away

    I'm the one who has to swallow water
    That's what I get for chasing after (you)
    You should be hanging by your neck
    Hanging there silently

    I can't stop the bleeding
    Tell me that you want me (if you need me)
    Tell me that you love me (if you want me)
    Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
    Tell me that you want me (do you want me?)
    Tell me do you want me (do you love me?)

    Why won't you be quiet now?
    Why won't you be quiet now?
    Why won't you be quiet now?
    Why won't you be quiet now?
    Why won't you be quiet now?
    It's time to see what's left of me

    I can't stop the bleeding
    Tell me that you want me (if you need me)
    Tell me that you love me (if you want me)
    Your dying eyes tell a story of poisonous passion
    Tell me that you want me (do you want me?)
    Tell me do you want me (do you love me?)

    You will be sorry when
    He spills the blood from your throat
    You'll be torn limb from limb
    Tramp!

    You'll be torn limb from limb (limb from limb) Writer/s: DENNIS LEE, DENNIS LAVELL LEE, JEREMY BRYAN, PATRICK THOMPSON, PATRICK M. THOMPSON, SHANE DONOVAN CRUMP, SHAWN MILKE
