"The Ghost And The Reaper " as written by and Andy Mccluskey Paul Humphreys....
Here the stars no longer shine
And bitter is the wine
That flows between my lips
In our garden that withered so fast
Two roses, red and white
The princess and the knight
We'll always be here
We will be waiting for
Now and forevermore

We, we are the Eden's curse
For better and for worse
For you left for your ghost
And I am the reaper of souls
The pyres burning bright
Flames reaching for the sky
Now you are gone but
I'll write the eulogy for you

Cold is the stream
Colder my blood and
Cold is the night
Colder your heart
Lifeless in my arms
Fallen for my charms

Dark tale of a dark love
Poetry of poison
The Ghost and the Reaper
Grim verse from a grim soul
History of heartless
The dream and the dreamer
Sour words from a sour heart
Hollow and so hopeless
The scream and the screamer
Dead oaths from our dead lips fallen
So lifeless, so silent

Now lets take our final bow
And let the curtain fall
The stage will fade to black
A life that will never come back
A dark emporium
Of even darker dreams
Where nothing's what it seems
But the shadows they call you

Cold is the stream
Colder my blood and
Cold is the night
Colder your heart
Lifeless in my arms
Fallen for my charms

Dark tale of a dark love
Poetry of poison
The Ghost and the Reaper
Grim verse from a grim soul
History of heartless
The dream and the dreamer
Sour words from a sour heart
Hollow and so hopeless
The scream and the screamer
Dead oaths from our dead lips fallen
So lifeless, so silent

Would you please pour holy water on me
For all that I want is to join with the sea
I wanna go where the ocean caresses the virgin shore
For once more

Dark tale of a dark love
Poetry of poison
The Ghost and the Reaper
Grim verse from a grim soul
History of heartless
The dream and the dreamer
Sour words from a sour heart
Hollow and so hopeless
The scream and the screamer
Dead oaths from our dead lips fallen
So lifeless, so silent

Dark tale of a dark love
Poetry of poison
The Ghost and the Reaper
Grim verse from a grim soul
History of heartless
The dream and the dreamer
Sour words from a sour heart
Hollow and so hopeless
The scream and the screamer
Dead oaths from our dead lips fallen
So lifeless, so silent

    My InterpretationI tried to post the correct lyrics but it won't allow it so here they are -

    Here the stars no longer shine
    And bitter is the wine
    That flows between my lips
    In our garden that withered so fast
    Two roses, red and white
    The princess and the knight
    We'll always be here
    We will be waiting for
    Now and forevermore

    We, we are the Eden's curse
    For better and for worse
    For you left for your ghost
    And I am the reaper of souls
    The pyres burning bright
    Flames reaching for the sky
    Now you are gone but
    I'll write the eulogy for you

    Cold is the stream
    Colder my blood and
    Cold is the night
    Colder your heart
    Lifeless in my arms
    Fallen for my charms

    Dark tale of a dark love
    Poetry of poison
    The Ghost and the Reaper
    Grim verse from a grim soul
    History of heartless
    The dream and the dreamer
    Sour words from a sour heart
    Hollow and so hopeless
    The scream and the screamer
    Dead oaths from our dead lips fallen
    So lifeless, so silent

    Now lets take our final bow
    And let the curtain fall
    The stage will fade to black
    A life that will never come back
    A dark emporium
    Of even darker dreams
    Where nothing's what it seems
    But the shadows they call you

    Cold is the stream
    Colder my blood and
    Cold is the night
    Colder your heart
    Lifeless in my arms
    Fallen for my charms

    Dark tale of a dark love
    Poetry of poison
    The Ghost and the Reaper
    Grim verse from a grim soul
    History of heartless
    The dream and the dreamer

    My InterpretationI think this song's a sort of re-imagining of Adam & Eve re-told as a much darker, grimmer allegory.
