the season's finally turned
and i'm walking down to work
cause there's much left to be earned in these hours
the snow has finally learned
that she's relinquishing the dirt
i'm so incensed to see the earth that i stop and cry out:

Lady Teresa
could you find me forgiveness?
i would lay down beneath it
and cry in your kisses
Ave Natura,
with the sun as my witness
i cannot resist it,
can't find the reasons
they tell me i should forget you,
but i know that's just business
you are the shadow of heaven,
you are the mother of my sins.

i was buried underneath
a weight i couldn't see
all this concrete covered me, like a shroud...of snow
silent i called your name
and silently you came
over the freeways and the trains and i found my lungs again...singing:

Lady Teresa
could you find me forgiveness?
i would lay down beneath it
and cry in your kisses
Ave Natura,
with the moon as my witness,
i cannot resist it,
can't find the reasons
they tell me i should forget you,
but i know thats just business
you are the shadow of eden,
you are the mother of my sins,
you are the water on my lips,
that sinewy death grip,
the siren of instinct,
the ghost i will worship.
