Alesana Alchemy Sounded Good at the Time Lyrics

My darling queen,
I lay myself at your feet and I shall stay the hands of fate

Wind cries out,
Heavens boil above voicing discontent to my sins
I have found the way to trick the ferrymen I have deceived the ancient Gods

[Chorus]
Cold flesh lends to me its secrets
Each day brings me closer to you
For a price too high
My tragic victory
I shudder at what I have done

Darling queen I lay at your feet
Chills take me as she wakes,
Throat gasps tainted breath I've reclaimed you my stolen bride
Can your soul forgive my crimes of passion? I would not close the casket;
I'm so consumed by your pain faint screams echo through the night...

[Chorus]

The pains of death can no longer haunt you as the dawning sky
Brings forth one forsaken thought death can not win for
I dwell in the palace of decay and I shall stay the hands of fate

Night descends, sinews twitch
My pale queen finally stands to taste silent lips now cursed with her love

[Chorus]
