lyrics

I've followed the tie in the silk
I've followed the tie in the silk
And I've watched as the fabrics
from her body were spilt
but my ribs had turned inwards with guilt

And I thought of the desert again
I thought of the desert again
How lightly the wind blows
to uncover her hand
She had fallen asleep in the sand

The dogs are unendingly sweet
The dogs are unendingly sweet
Until hunger sets in
and one scrap of meat
falls between the two dogs at their feet

And I watch as they snarl and bite
they put up one hell of a fight
The reward, to keep living
and vaguely survive
if only for a limited time

I've seen her now, naked and cold
I've seen her now, naked and cold
A woman so battered
I've yet to behold
and I wonder if I've sunken too low
