Empress

Know me
and adore me
a can­did face
in a golden haze

I’m an empress
I weep under stars
imag­in­ery guards
keep watch and ward

at the gates of slum­ber
I live in dreams
half-awake I fear the thun­der
grey hands
dig in my golden curls
dark mat­ters gather
I act and they command

know me
and adore me
shiny pearls
drip from my lips

white light
carry me away
what they’ve done
makes me stay

at the gates of slum­ber
I live in dreams
half-awake I feel their hunger
grey hands
they cut my cheeks
skulls purr
we’re the empire of need

I am the world’s for­got­ten toy
this is my crown
I’m on my own

I am the world’s for­got­ten toy
this is my crown
I’m on my own
