A sea to sail alone
This glass of Fée Verte and nothing else
My one way journey into the storm
Surpassing the Pillars of Hercules

And I can't go back anymore
I'm gonna hold you tight
I have no choice, I can't return
So do I

En route towards the dawn
Forever, together
Green is the pain, green is the drug
We melt like sugar

Come whisper words of love
Inebriate my soul again
"Emerald nectar, let me be mad!"
As Charon's taking my hand

The compass points to hell
I will stand by your side
I spin in the spiral of distress
Come drink the night
Can hear the sound of death-knell
Gently harmonizes your cry
Life is a sip, I guzzled it all
So time has come to die

Doomed is your existence
Superfluous living thing
To dissolution you belong
Hydrate your withered "I" with Artemisia's tears
Wollow in self-pity all along
Seek for excuses to justify the fault
Distill the memories to mystify the truth

Dearth of willpower
Hiatus of inner strength
Offense to the entire human race
Pure blood abortion of a long line of undead
Expression of mother nature shame
The arms of Morpheus are cradling your soul
Diluting torments in the night
And Dionysus is singing loud your requiem
A wordless threnody for the weak one

We went to far astray
To seek an inner grace
But what we found was pain
And delight
And sorrow

I am the cleansing flame
Muse of the poets and painters
What I create I can erase
For god's sake!
Nightmare of parisian nights
Why did you do this to me?
To kiss the moon this is the price
I should never let the sun in

En route towards the dawn
Forever, together
Green is the pain, green is the drug
As I'm your only god
