lyrics

Come waste away with me, let's lie beneath the forbidden tree and feast upon everything we see that is unholy.
We'll fill our mouths with blood and like the swine let us roll in the filth and the mud and as a dog returns to it's vomit, let us repeat our vile history.
All man is like the grass and his beauty like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, tell me what remains in the end?

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest. Come my child, hush my child and lay your weary head upon my chest.
And dream of a time before you embraced your wicked deeds. Of your innocence and purity now covered with disease
Yes, dream while you still can, hold your peace like a gun, for when you awake child you're going to reap what you have sown.

All man is like the grass and his beauty like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades, tell me what remains in the end...

The grass withers, the flower fades and only truth remains in the end.
