lyrics

Oh red eyes of sorrow
You're burning me down while you're dragging me through
I cannot believe all the horrors I breathe when I greet you

Oh red eyes of sorrow
There's a burning black hole in the side of the room
From my deathbed I see all the skulls in the trees rise to greet you

Oh red eyes of sorrow,
The sun I arise I to sleep am the moon
Crowned here in fire I am sick with desire and I need you

Sometimes things just get ugly and the bottom falls out it's true
Sometimes when you look into your mind and then you look into your mirror you're a king there too
And when you're drowned and you look back on what you've found and then you find that what you are was only half of you
Don't let that bottle creep up on you

Oh red eyes of sorrow,
Oh I'm losing my mind don't know quite what to do
I have borne all the seeds you have planted in me they are strange fruit

Oh red eyes of sorrow, oh
What shall I keep lord and what shall I lose
Between the sting of your bees and your well-worded pleas I'm in debt to you

Sometimes things just get ugly and the bottom falls out it's true
Sometimes when you look into your mind and then you look into your mirror you're a king there too
And when you're drowned and you look back on what you've found and then you find that what you are was only half of you
Don't let that bottle creep up on you
