Sanctuary (Glen Nicholls Mix)

from In Scarlet & Vile (Special Edition) by The Echoing Green

lyrics

take naivety from me
and leave me isolated
all at once I feel so free
yet so captivated
you make the endless waves of time
seem so temporary,
you're my missionary...
emissary...
adversary.

you define the line
between human and divine
in this empty place
intrinsic grace so necessary
see the skies divide
when hope and fear collides
from this cemetery
offer me this sanctuary

there is violence when you move
yet I'm stationary
devastate all my design
and make it arbitrary
you break my legs yet leave my knees
my will penetrated
I'm eviscerated..
consecrated..
lacerated!

you define the line
between human and divine
in this empty place
intrinsic grace so necessary
see the skies divide
when hope and fear collide
from this cemetery
offer me this sanctuary

this heart you break it
and make it sacred
these eyes awaken
this breath is taken from you
