Referendum of Loss

A passing dream
Forever More and Anywhere
yours to be true.

Dead to the world
When I once lived From the Fire
With a Thirst only you could sate
Now I join a chorus of 10,000 decaying hands in the air
Clapping along to our own Corrosion.

Love Like Blood
left outside of your Happy House
Body and Soul
Lost outside your Temple of Love.

Body Electric
A Heart of Glass
shattered by such goodbyes
A quick and painless Termination Bliss.

Dead Again without you
Praying to the Prophets of Doom
The September Sun wont wake me
As I sleep for Some Stupid Tomorrow
Where once I prayed Hail And Farewell to Britain.

Some Hazy Shade of Winter
I wave Hello to the Sleeping Sun
a denizen of this dead world of Blurred Technicolor
I hide my Fear of a Blank Planet
and muster on to meet The End
and pray the shadows Gimme Shelter
Cause my Electric Head can’t take no more.
