ordeal lyrics – fall of the leafe

your screaming soul, how you have tried to touch me
enfolded like a desert wind
hot dry dust in the flower
push me away
sink down to the bottom with me
your glare to cover me

hold this memory, this p*sses by
all my sight and sound, all that i p*ssed by
every tear shed, another day p*ssed
every drop of rain a flower daid
we stare out of a portal into a desert
the colour of a rose at sunset
shivering in the heat
our minds wander across the sand

a fountain in the courtyard
turn away as love fades in the shades of sun – drenched sienna
you say the sun will rise to burn you away
time decayed in my veins here
i am done, dry in the dust
centuries of ancient longing
time and again i loved you when you crushed me
don’t turn away
an image of you, pr*ne on my doorstep, is deep in my heart

watch closely and live
one with the sand that p*sses us by
call out my name
lie silent in darkness
reach out you hand, feel the teeth of fear
my death
i stand in stone
you want nothing more
stand here in stone
