Self portrait December 2012
edited in Corel X2
Inspired by The Cardinal Sin

Sail to the stars on your shining desires.
“Reasons? there are none!” cried the whiskey laden brain.
“When all is said and done, it amounts to just the same.”

There in your starry eyes lie hopes that have been betrayed.

The cause of your desire can also lead to your demise.
When all is said and done it will be you who pays the price
As countless fools are often loathe to testify
“It’s an illusion of life, the whole cause of our demise.”

Sail to the stars on your shining desires.
Lucretia waits in vain for the child of her dreams.
Within her aching womb there burns a funeral pyre.

There in your starry eyes lie hopes that have been betrayed.
The prize that you claim can never be yours to take
Like castles in Spain, hope is all that will remain.

Abstain from the fools paradise,
It’s an illusion of life, the whole cause of our desire.
Fools are often loathe to testify
“It’s an illusion of life, the whole cause of our demise.”

Contemplate the world and it’s traitors to the soul.
The forces of derision and it’s legions manifold.
Usurpers of the crown, all pretenders to the throne,
Your world is linked in chains “All in one, One in all”.

“All in one, One in all”. (x8)

Fools are often loathe to testify
It’s an illusion of life
The whole cause of our demise
It’s an illusion of life (x4)

Lyrics © Dead Can Dance

I am a self taught photographer and everything artist. For me this is meditation and medication!
I want to invade your mind or strike a cord in your heart with what I do. I do this for ME and those I love.
