lyrics

Fierce Black Soul of Night
(Knight/Winter)

You prick me with your poison vine
And wake my dark and dreaming mind
Deep in dream the coiled serpent sleeps
Her golden eye keeps watch upon my dreams

Oh I burn with stolen fire
Burst to flame in all my heart’s desire

The poppy’s kiss is on my tongue
The veil is lifted, all the songs are sung
The sandman casts his heady flask aside
And I awake into the velvet night

Muse of midnight, rise within
Rip the soul right from my skin
I take refuge in the fierce black soul of night

The nightmare rides on tainted wings
Her eyes speak of forgotten things
Her hair streams out in coils of maddening
Her dreaming mind not stained by sad things

I hear the chains clank in the hollow maze
Naked I endure your gaze
I raise my glass and fall away
Into the river of unconquered souls

Oh I burn with stolen fire
Burst to flame in all my heart’s desire

Muse of midnight, rise within
Rip the soul right from my skin
I take refuge in the fierce black soul of night

Let the wine be strong, let my words be bold
Let the truth be told, the poppies burn bright gold :
