A Sip Of Wine Chased With Cyanide - Lyrics by A Static Lullaby

Glorify her smile
Condemn his frown
Choke on the phrases left unsaid
Silver bullets that pierce my ears
Shadows of demons melt my persona
Taken from the memory of the darkess lock
Can I walk amongst the slave chained to the hopeless and lenched from your smile
Can I float upon your tears swealtering the hate for our non-existance
Send the dove
Bring her a star
Throw me a raven
Spoon out my heart
With the last ounce of dignity
I will pray
Scream out
My mistakes to the heavens
Send the dove
Bring her a star
Throw me a raven
Spoon out my..
Spoon out my heart
Spoon out my heart
