Above, Below – Blood Wine Lyrics

Blood Wine by Above, Below


Part I: Elegy

We live as we dream, so alone, so alone
Taking rich sips, from a glass of blood wine.
From within the veins of a heart of darkness, I am confined.
I fell from grace just to miss the arms waiting to catch me.
I slipped through time and egressed into a forlorn ethos.
The lotus I dream is now drenched in rain.
No longer of its opulent purple stain.
No longer of its opulent purple stain

Wake up…
Wake up; wake up – is this but a dream?
Liquidated melancholy flowing inside of me.
Pinching at my skin, but still loyal to the nightmare that
I’m stuck in.
Writing scriptures of hatred about the ones I love
How is this the person that I’ve become?
What have I become?

I learned to mourn when I learned to love
A fragile gift on the wings of a dove.
The sun is cold, forevermore.
I learned to mourn when I learned to love
A fragile gift on the wings of a dove.
The sun is cold, forevermore, forevermore
It is foolish to resist the kiss of death.

Part 2: Diatribe

You swore, you swore!
I was comfortably numb
But break my heart for I held my tongue.
I trudged through crimson isles in constant envy of your bleeding smiles
And I’ll never forgive myself for those futile desires.

I was dying of thirst, and you fed me salt
Now the flowers you returned, once vibrant, now rot

You’re just a fucking snake,
Spitting words of venom,
Infecting those you love,
Enraging those who hate you.
You’re toxic and alone.
You sit upon a serpents throne.
But it’s my greatest shame;
I’m exactly the same.
A wilful player in this devils game.

I learned to mourn when I learned to love
A fragile gift on the wings of a dove.
The sun is cold, forevermore.
We fell apart when we fell in love
Two fragile souls dipped in a glass of blood.
The sun is cold, forevermore, forevermore
