"Slaying The Dreamer" lyrics

Slaying The Dreamer

I'm a priest
For the poorest
Sacrifice
I'm but a raft
In a sea of sorrow
Sorrow and greed
You bathed
In my wine
Drank from my cup
Mocked my rhyme
Your slit tongues licked
My aching wounds

Put a stake
Through my heart
And drag me into sunlight
So awake
For your greed
As you're slaying the dreamer

Swansong
For the Wish of Night
God it hurts
Give a name to the pain
Our primrose path
To hell is growing weed

Put a stake
Through my heart
And drag me into sunlight
So awake
For your greed
As you're slaying the dreamer

Blame me, it's me
Coward, a good-for-nothing scapegoat
Dumb kid, living a dream
Romantic only on paper

Tell me why
You took all that was mine
Stay as you lay
Don't lead me astray
Tell me why
You took all that was mine
Stay as you lay
Don't lead me astray

Wake up
Mow the weed
You'd be nothing without me
Take my life
If you have heart
Heart to die

You bastards tainted my tool
Raped my words
Played me a fool
Gather your precious
Glitter and leave me be
The Great Ones are all dead
And I'm tired too
I truly hate you all
