Your frozen hands, a clock of ages
Ice blood flows through these veins
Your enigmatic smile, so cold
A season's dream longs for day

The lies you told cut so deep
Slings and arrows of dread import
Impervious, oblivious
No horn could fracture these walls

I can't speak, words do not come
Take me away, render my heart numb
I stumble and fall, upon hostile ground
Lies like stone, my fate is bound

The earnest prayer on my lips turns to dust, like all things
A false foundation mocks this world, and passes through
Unassailed by conscience, uncaring of consequence
Thus the arrow is loosed by the archer of all truth

The ringing chimes, so clear and blue
Glancing skin like a lover's kiss
Shiver softly, this winter's chill
No man or woman should come to this

Our crystal bloom lies shattered, a thousand singing shards
When the veil covers us all, as below so above
Never to witness the fabled thaw of our solitude
So damned, to seek in vain the secrets of our love
Close your eyes, let slumber take hold, and be not bitter
Frozen forever in eternal night, your fortress of winter
