I caught a glimpse out the window
A Polish graveyard filled with widows
I coddle a bottle of warm beer
I see a pool of liquid tears
Glimmering so sweet and mellow
A sea of lilting wilting willow
A secret book of forgotten wishes
Drown in ponds with broken dishes

The moon asked the crow
For a little show
In the hazy milk of twilight
No one had to know

Angel brother, I miss your hair
Careless nature, gentle stare
You fell like rain in the dark abysses
Kissed the lips of bloody twinsis
Sung to by a slew of sirens
Tricky mermaids, evil pirates

You watched the sky with kaleidoscopic eyes
Howling out right to the blasphemous night
A wolf in the garden, why do you linger so?
Like a silky snail soul

The moon asked the crow
For a little show
In the hazy milk of twilight
No one had to know

    Lyric CorrectionI caught a glimpse out the window
    A Polish graveyard filled with widows
    I coddle a bottle of warm beer
    I see a pool of liquid tears
    Glimmering so sweet and mellow
    A sea of lilting wilting willow
    A secret book of forgotten wishes
    Drown in ponds with broken dishes

    The moon asked the crow
    For a little show
    In the hazy milk of twilight
    No one had to know

    Angel brother, I miss your hair
    Careless nature, gentle stare
    You fell like rain in the dark abysses
    Kissed the lips of bloody twins
    Assaulted by a slew of sirens
    Tricky mermaids, evil pirates

    You watched the sky with kaleidoscopic eyes
    Howling out right to the blasphemous night
    A wolf in the garden, why do you linger so?
    Like a silky snail soul

    The moon asked the crow
    For a little show
    In the hazy milk of twilight
    No one had to know

    Lyric Correctioncool here's what i heard:

    i see THEM LILTING, WILTING willow
    I SEEK A BOOK of forgotten wishes

    in the hazy milk of twilight,
    NO ONE HAD TO KNOW

    SUNG TO by a slew of sirens

    you WATCH the sky with KALEIDOSCOPIC EYES

    General CommentThe problem today is that people only download music so they can't check the liner notes on the album. Well, I did. User "museum" had it almost right -- but failed to actually correct the lyrics.

    The liner notes say "twinsis", not "twins" and "twinsis" is what she sings too.

    The liner notes say "sung to you a slew of sirens", but she clearly sings "sung to by a slew of sirens".

    Interestingly the lyrics for the chorus is not given in the liner notes.
