1. Kiss of Steel

From the recording Perfect Shell


Cold stone
Sharpening the words on your tongue
As the blood begins to run
Bitter and blue
The taste of your lies
As our bodies become one

Low light
Hides the look of guilt on your face
This night
The myth of trust is laid to waste
Battered and bruised
Each of our lives
Betrayal leaves its trace

Kiss of steel
On your breath
I smell sweetness
And death

Soft moans
Whisper of our dirty pasts
All the pain behind this mask
Fleeting and few
The glimpses of truth
We catch them when we can
