Artemis (Sleeping Beauty)

Such a divine moment, 
I've lost my self control
Such a divine moment
Dwell before your holiest of alters

I'll sell my self esteem
I'll sell my soul
I'll sell my honour
Just one taste of you

So pure, and such a rare token
A dollar right in time
So scarce, and such a rare beauty
Stay frozen, still still, in the quiet of times

When I look through,
I can see you naked by the oblivious
And you don't see anyone
Just a reflection in a mirror of mistruths

Is it too hard to ask you
Sleeping beauty?
We're both drunk on egos
Truelly I could make it right if I wake you up

Come into my world
Breath
Come into my world
Breath
 
But I can't help but I feel a little bit curious
About your amends
So glad to see you well
But I have to see what is beneath the halo

So glad to see you well, but my friend, is nothing
What you kept behind the eyes of the spiral
What you didn't keep behind the eyes of a falling spiral
Now everyone has found out back to the sleeping beauty
