lyrics

A yellow fog flows from the brim of the moon
Through weeping forrests of an unwordly hue
The hallowed paths weave over tattered terrain
Stalked by the spirits striped with war on their face

An ancient valley where a city once stood
Plundered by plutocrats who took all they could
The emerald temples where the holy ones sleep
When twilight parts the earth they rise to their feet

In the cruel night
She will wait for you
With a cool smile
She Will wait for you

An ocean princess laid to delicate rest
With seashell eyelids and the sun in her chest
A crimson furry claws its way to the sky
The river thickens with the blood of the tribe

In the cruel night
She will wait for you
With a cool smile
She Will wait for you

In the cruel night
She will wait for you
With a cool smile
She will wait for you
She will wait for you

In the cruel night
She will wait for you
With a cool smile
She Will wait for you

In the cruel night
She will wait for you
With a cool smile
She Will wait for you
She will wait for you.
