lyrics

The mis-shapen shape of the moon won't get us too far.
But damn the days, your head I will open up.
He knocked over the walls, but he knocked on the door -
Victor Magik's got nothing on you except all of his clothes.

Where did he go, this friend of mine?
Amongst the misguided fools that reside in your mind?
If I am near death, will you spare my life?
Sorry girl, no promises until we get some information from you.

Down the walls he'll see the blood from countless trials,
while young Daedalus he sleeps restless, for so much time has passed. So pass the table salt and we'll make this natural,
and I'll bide my time until you give me your mind.

Where did he go, this friend of mine?
Amongst the misguided fools that reside in your mind?
If I am complete, then what task must I seek?
You'll sit here in the dark and you'll whistle

for me

What you are is what we once were,
what we are is what you will be.
Memento Mori
