lyrics

She has no name to remember her for

But I remember her eyes as she walked out that door

Her mind is pained, yet relentless to the war

That plagues her heart- that demands so much more


Spider fingers pull on lace ties

Unravel the mystery in her pale smooth thighs

Perhaps unravel the mystery in her eyes

And the birds sing as they go by and by


She was the golden bird perched on the balcony

Who sang her songs to the courtiers and buyers

Swayed by riches and sirens with voices of honey

Disappeared in the arms of masquerading liars


Six winters pass and her presence is still there

Dusk till dawn, make up like a geisha, flower in her hair

Never bothered to ask the name- I would only stare

As conquistadors would march off with their share


She was the golden bird perched on the balcony

Who sang her songs to the courtiers and buyers

Swayed by riches and sirens with voices of honey

Disappeared in the arms of masquerading liars


And she can no longer bear her shame, not with all her might

And her life has now come and gone

Like a flashing light

In those eyes I see no mystery, but a terror and a fright

Of a woman doing what she must in the late hours of the night
