Cain and Mosley Carter and Dean
All shared a loyal murder of crows
Each bird carries his own load of seed
For Cain's portrait in mutiflora rose
Their thorns do rest in cold grey rows
Their eyes lifeless gleam
Pride does rise like ash in the wind
From their fires to their hollows and streams

Hatred and yearning the devil's own plow
Bleeding out broken stalks
Your flesh will only burn longer now
That you have chosen to talk
Murder does toil in love and in time
To prove our mountain destroyed
Vessels of soil blood and of lime
Carry you through the great void

The touch of their hand would cast you in lead
Your body find silence from sin
The belly of love gets sewn up in thread
Pierced through his hot velvet skin
Tiles again brick up the mind
Proven and solid by flame
Driven alone by a nature unkind
Removed from the shadows of blame

You'd take it back now if you only could
You'd still give all to be true
You eyes grow empty you mind has gone cold
It's time now to take it on through
Wherever they look they always find
More willing to take this throne
Some slaves never know to open their eyes
To things that their masters have done
