This is the story of two young lovers on a beach
Who found each other by the end of the war
They set out to explore the bodies on the shore
And what they found – it would hurt them
Smoke mixed with fire

Pity mixed with pain
The waves came crashing
Swept them away
Confessions written in the sand

The pleasures of the flesh
The passion
Sex and death
By a thousand cuts
The pleasures of the flesh
By a thousand cuts

It's a moonlit night in a small town
A headless man, scissors in his hand
Cuts the hair, cuts the tongues
A chalice smashed against the stone
The victim's eyes
A Satanic church

A woman leaps out of the window
Two young soldiers at the very end
They simply waltz the night away

The palace of excess
The madness
Life and death
The breaking need
The palace of excess
The breaking need
