With your hair of flaming Roses
Your kiss - Medusa's touch
Turn me to a pillar of salt
To die now would be perfection

Then my loneliness closes in
So, I drink a German wine
And drift in dreams of other lives
And greater times

White sheets wrap my mind
In drunken thoughts of runes and men
Why does the devil leave for us
This legacy of loneliness

This cry for the moon
And a dagger's thrust
With your hair of flaming blooms
And your eyes of saintly dusk

Then my loneliness closes in
So, I drink a German wine
And drift in dreams of other lives
And greater times

    General CommentThe dialog in the background is from Triumph of The Will. It's like he is in love with someone amazing , but the second verse lets us know that he dose not have her/him so he gets drunk & "drifts in dreams of other lives
    And greater times" the background dialog hints at what the "greater times" are. This song is stuck in my head & I'll never get it out!
