lyrics

Lady,
Thank you for this beauty,
Thank you for your sadness, too,
Twilight trembles in the Fountain,
Moonbeams trickle down the mountain.
And I can feel a distant laughter growing,
Even as my Angel flies away,
Her feathers fall like shadows of pure silver,
Unicorns run through the shallow water.
Yeah, I can feel a secret flower blooming,
Even as my garden burns away,
Her petals fall like shadows of pure silver,
Unicorns run through the shallow water.

I was no knight,
I was no champion.
I was godless as a guitar never played,
I never prayed,
I prayed the wrong way,
I was empty from a feast of fairy food,
My soul askew,
Until I saw you,
Bright as day,
In a gloomy kind of way,
Hear my psalm--
gratification,
Take my song,
My lamentation
away...

Lady,
Thank you for the Nightmare,
Thank you for the morning Light,
As devils get wasted on my teardrops,
My eyes to the Angels ever turning,
'Cause I can always feel a candle burning,
Within the shadows of our soul,
That's why I'm crying,
Trying to remember,
The waterfalls and Angelwings of Amber.
Yeah, I can always feel a siren singing,
Within the ocean of our soul,
That's why I'm crying,
Trying to remember,
The unicorns running through the shallow water.

Upon the stage,
Upon the altar,
There is blood upon my mouth,
But it ain't mine,
Give me a sign,
Show me a good time,
I see the smile on your face,
But is it real?
What do you feel?
How do you really feel today--
Any better than yesterday?
Beyond the grave, there is a Garden,
It never fades, but babe,
You gotta wait a little while,
All is just a little while,
Then we'll be in the Garden by the Sea,
Gratification,
My lamentation
Away.
