deep as the terrible sky
that you fell from this
this terrible beauty is born
dethroned
I haunt the saltmines
a living wound
living, breathing wound

deep was the ocean and wide
that I slither from
terrible beauty is born
dethroned
I haunt the saltmines
a living wound
living,breathing wound...

    General CommentThe sample at the end of the song is from the movie Gummo, which is just as depressing as this song is.
