Once someone told
A story about these small desert birds
Throwing themselves
In thorns when copulating in lust

And while embraced by death
They sing so fine than never
And while embraced by death
They stay in love forever

Like martyrs do
They dedicate their lifes in deep vein
Of ancient vows
And die of flaring ardour in haze

Thorns they lurk on roses stem
They do intend no harm them

Squeezing me hard
In thorns that burn like a fire inside
Thrilling my head
Until they rip my shivering skin

Thorns they lurk on roses stem
They do intend no harm them
They lurk on bodies stem
They make my heart arise them

    General CommentDoes anyone else think this song is referencing The Thorn Birds, by Colleen McCullough? You've probably read the part I'm talking about:

    "There is a legend about a bird
    which sings just once in its life,
    more sweetly than any other creature on the face of the earth.
    From the moment it leaves the nest it searches for a thorn tree,
    and does not rest until it has found one.
    Then, singing among the savage branches,
    it impales itself upon the longest, sharpest spine.
    And, dying, it rises above its own agony to outcarol the lark and the nightingale.
    One superlative song, existence the price.
    But the whole world stills to listen,
    and God in His heaven smiles.
    For the best is only bought at the cost of great pain....
    Or so says the legend."

    I'm pretty sure he's talking about that poem (Once someone told a story about these small desert birds,
    throwing themselves in thorns when copulating in lust...And while embraced by death they sing so fine than never).
