lyrics

Picture book... every panel, some borrowed image - some shadow that he casts.
Dreams of darkness; scenes remembered – All one...all one...

Please... please don’t...please don’t hurt me...
don’t hurt me any more.

Stretched out... soaks up the violence. Torn and twisted, bloody...So young... she’s so young.
Licks her lips: sets him aflame against himself... oh, take the blame, please...

...please don’t...please don’t hurt me...
don’t hurt me any more...

Another frame – a bitter picture: See her standing
light on her feet/light on the blade...

...and he will come from the shadows, come to claim her...it’s so dark: edges blur...
...in the shadows... so deep... so dark

With her eyes shut... So tightly...Still sees the picture:
Silent scene...silent scream
Please... please don’t ....

please don’t take me.... don’t take me any more...
