Statues are so beautiful
Age shall not wither them
Photos frame milliseconds
So the years can’t condemn

Lamentably
We will grow old
And relentlessly
We will grow cold

But in my dream of Dorian Gray
I staple blossom onto trees
Carve my image deep in rock
And drink from virgin arteries

Born a perfect specimen
Purity is only loaned
Curse chromosomes as slowly flesh
Learns to drip down from bone

So inevitably
We will grow old
And regrettably
We will grow cold

But in my dream of Dorian Gray
I staple blossom onto trees
Carve my image deep in rock
And drink from virgin arteries

Glowing youth slows to dulled age
And liver spotted atrophy
Degraded and decrepit
Salad days grind to senility

But in my dream of Dorian Gray
I staple blossom onto trees
Carve my image deep in rock
And drink from virgin arteries
