Water so dark and dreary
That's where my sweet Mary sleeps
Under the ice in winter
I placed my axe in her back
She was so pretty - I had to make her mine

Her white dress stained red
Axe head cased in her ribcage
Kicking her twitching corpse in the sea
She is still breathing
The stars are bleeding, dripping her light forever
I should have saved her
Kept her bones for fire

Slowly reaching in the water
To see how her breath still flows
Her hand grabs my wrist tightly
I can see the life light flicker in her eyes
Like a candle on its wick's last burning ember

Her complexion so pale as if she had seen a ghost
A ghost of her life fading as the water entered her lungs
A gasp and my hand holding nothing
As she begins to fall
Down deep where cries won't echo
Below in the depths of hollow
Ruby lips. Blue water
The stars are bleeding, dripping her light forever

I did what I had to do splitting her in two
Ceasing with a cry I couldn't hear
But it rang through my soul

Knowing her life below
Knowing what happened inside
Her watery tomb-less grave
Forever the serpents slave
Ruby lips. Blue water
The stars are bleeding, dripping her light forever
Forever dying
Premature interment in water
Let my axe be your anchor
She rests deep in murder
Let my axe be your anchor
Let my axe be your anchor

Montage of sinning smiles
Flash black then I see teeth
Sharp ivory glistening
A true dog underneath
A jackal, my baby a jackal
