Crimson & Crystal

Crimson and Crystal deck her shadow halls,
And in incense and teardrops her voice gently calls,
But in that silent kingdom the sun never shines
For she's locked it away in the fortress of time.

Her eyes they are hollow like deep empty pools,
And her touch is like ice; it makes mortal blood cool.
Her existence is longing; she's waiting for me.
My dear Lady Death will soon set me free.

In mansions of shadow she wanders each night,
But she's ever alone outside time's patterned flight.
As she lays down beside each lover she takes,
She whispers their name, but they never awake.

Crimson and Crystal deck her shadow halls,
And in incense and teardrops my name now she calls.
I'll see her tomorrow, for with her I'll go,
To stay with the Lady that time only knows.

Crimson and Crystal deck her shadow halls,
And the time will be coming when we've all been called
To lie down in silence in her crystal sleep,
And she'll watch us and guard us in her crimson keep.
