Lake of Sin

Album: NONSTOPEROTIK (2010)
  • I heard the kiss, could not ignore
    The gentle lap upon the shore
    Behind the green fern
    Undressing though I could not swim
    My body pierced, I threw me in
    Just like the clean worm into the lake of sin

    A secret knock there on my door
    The sun is hot poured on my floor
    I push it back out
    And now it's cool inside the box
    And as I pray, another knocks, I am so devout
    To the lake of sin

    I hear a kiss, cannot ignore
    The gentle lap upon the shore
    Behind the green fern
    Undressing though I cannot not swim
    My body pierced, I throw me in
    Just like the clean worm into the lake of sin
