Kill Zone

Album: Tooth of Crime (2008)

  • We stood together in the open field
    And heard the secret that the night revealed
    Then we chased the lie
    Racing through the sky

    Can we untangle guilt or innocence?
    How hard we torture this ambivalence
    Night will bring no dawn
    Where has power gone?

    For I'll steal your dreams while you are sleeping
    And sell them for dust and cheap lust
    And I'll slit your hope while you are weeping
    And wipe the blood clean with morphine
    Be my queen

    The wind howls the black clouds around the storm at sea
    I'm dropping at too great a speed
    Come closer to me on your hands and knees
    Alone in the kill zone

    How much is not enough, how much is through?
    How long will I be getting over you?
    How much grief and sin 'til a heart caves in?
    'Til a heart caves in, 'til a heart caves in
