Bleeding The Orchid

Album: Zeitgeist (2007)
  • If life is my witness
    Love is my song
    If nothing means no one
    Then blank, i belong

    If fear conquers easy
    I can lead on
    Milk from the flower
    Blood from the dawn

    So here we are
    Upon your stage
    The laughs we shared
    The dreams we saved

    Bleeding the orchid
    We're bleeding the orchid
    Bleeding the orchid

    Blessed my weakness
    Blessed my wrongs
    As hate forms the sequence
    Of one by one

    As freedoms die easy
    We suffrage the want
    There's clouds in my shower
    Ghosts in my arms

    Youth is where you are
    Faith some sinner's child

    We're bleeding the orchid
    We're bleeding the orchid
    Bleeding the orchid

    Gilded art this silent march past triumph through alarm
    So thus charmed
    Does this will stand for much?

    But heart's untouched by heart's unloved

    Bleeding the orchid
    Here we are
    Upon your stage
    The love we share
    The dreams we'll save

    They're bleeding the orchid
    They're bleeding the orchid
    They're bleeding the orchid
    They're bleeding the orchid
