lyrics

Say farewell
The end is nigh
Kiss your lips and taste the wine

Wide awake mind reeling
Is not your heart now that I'm stealing
But your life with every breath
Words echo when nothings left
Crawling through a lake of fire
Consumed now by desire

Such a shame to lay to waste
Somber beauty angelic taste
But as the days we fade away
Lost in this barbarous state
Stand alone in presence face
Bare witness to a soulless fate
To lay an angel down to waste
Forever falling loss of grace
Arsenic and old lace

Say Farewell the end is nigh
Kiss your lips
Kiss your lips and taste the wine
Wine

A search for truth or something more
But still you play just like a whore
A Junkie fiending for a fix
So I gave you my 666
Take you down and watch you rot
Without a single thought

Such a shame to lay to waste
Somber beauty angelic taste
But as the days we fade away
Lost in this barbarous state
Stand alone in presence face
Bare witness to a soulless fate
To lay an angel down to waste
Forever falling loss of grace
Arsenic and old lace

Say Farewell the end is nigh
Kiss your lips
Kiss your lips and taste the wine
Wine

Walk away
Through the door
Turn your back
And say no more
Take the pain
Start again
Forge my fate
With my sin
Bittersweet
Agony
Closing in
Around me
Feel it all
Fade away
Arsenic and old lace

Such a shame to lay to waste
Somber beauty angelic taste
But as the days we fade away
Lost in this barbarous state
Stand alone in presence face
Bare witness to a soulless fate
To lay an angel down to waste
Forever falling loss of grace
Arsenic and old lace

Say Farewell the end is nigh
Kiss your lips
Kiss your lips and taste the wine
Wine

Through the door
Turn your back
And say no more
Take the pain
Start again
Forge my fate
With my sin
Bittersweet
Agony
Closing in
Around me
Feel it all
Fade away
Arsenic and old lace
