Murder by Degrees Lyrics

4. Murder by Degrees (4:38)
In a dream I was playing the hero,
When lightning stopped my nerves were shattered,
Dark laughter said that I was much too late,
For the very last time,
Night again and somehow colder,
Breath escapes in a crystal haze and I,
Chase panick in the black of a whispered scream,
As blood turns to crimson ice,

Murder by degrees,
And frost killing time,
I still see my brother's eyes,
Burning through the freeze,

Vision clouds to the sight of a dream and then,
Grey eyes of a snow wolf fill the sky,
Feel the hot sting of winter's dying kiss,
A glass angel chills my heart,

Murder by degrees,
And frost killing time,
I still see my brother's eyes,
Burning through the freeze,

Snow creatures swarming as sleep comes I fall,
I'm pulled through a crack in the ice.
