Skeleton Flowers


Pastel Perfume Intoxicating Malaise
Your Scent Will Lift The Curse Of These Days

Your Heads Held High, Roots So Tall
Your 12noon Shadow On The Wall

A Vase Of Flowers Passed Into Hands By Death
God Has Taken Your Life, They Have Given Me Breath

Sweet Nectar, How You Bloom To Turn Sour
Eye Catching Colors In My Room, Wasting The Hour

Why Do You Only Give Me Flowers In Mourning
When The Dust And The Ghost's In The Coffin Are Yawning

Now It's Empty, Nothing Remains... Only My Love For You...In Chains

I want you to know
one thing.
