It won't help if you wait for me.
I'm a slave to the dark.
I know I'm not a saint, you see.
The dawn is when it starts.

Feel the shadow of my oblivion
hoping mercy would show her face
on the road to your own perdition
in the coal-blackened rain.

Frozen in time
yearning fobidden wishes.
Damned and divine.
Scars of my broken kisses.
What will follow if tomorrow's blind?
My eternal night.

As the wind takes me away from you
before the morning light.
My sins are fading into view
I'm so weary deep inside.

Feel the shadow of my oblivion
hoping mercy would show her face
on the road to your own perdition
I may see you again.

Frozen in time
yearning fobidden wishes.
Damned and divine.
Scars of my broken kisses.
What will follow if tomorrow's blind?
My eternal night.

Frozen in time
yearning fobidden wishes.
Damned and divine.
Scars of my broken kisses.
What will follow if tomorrow's blind?
My eternal night.

Every single dawn I die again.

    General CommentTo me this is about a woman's struggle with temptation against religious (or social) stigma. 'Damned and divine' to me says she resists but is miserable as a result of it. I think she is talking to 'god' or an idea of god. She fears hell and that's the only reason she asks for forgiveness, but she doesn't really believe it, and at heart she is agnostic or an atheist.

    'It won't help if you wait for me.
    I'm a slave to the dark.
    I know I'm not a saint, you see.
    The dawn is when it starts.'

    She begins to feel guilty the morning after she has 'sinned'.

    'Feel the shadow of my oblivion
    hoping mercy would show her face'

    Fear of damnation, hoping to be forgiven for atheistic tendencies or thoughts.

    'What will follow if tomorrow's blind?
    My eternal night.'

    This seems ambivalent. 'eternal night' could mean 'hell' or it could mean eternal ignorance if she doesn't 'wake up' to the truth, whatever that is.
