Lyrics

We are not so much
As animals, my dear
Even though I do suppose
Behave as them, I fear
We bite and scratch over this and that
And I can be so cruel
But in spite of all the venom in my kiss
You know I do love you

And pay no mind, don’t even mind the dragon in my glare
When, held up to the passion in my eyes
I hope it won't compare

Ravage my heart with but a glance of your eye
We have no right to ever forget why

I looked into the cavity
My chest remembering
My heart was missing right from where
I know it used to be
You’ve let me take your heart out
And replace it with my own
The Sovereign has delivered yours
It's beating right in here, you know

I don’t even mind, don’t even mind the spiders in her hair
When held up to the glass in her eyes, they just don’t compare
I don’t even mind, don’t even mind the serpent in her stare
In spite of all the venom in her kiss, at least I know that she’s still there

Irony, principalities, the ruler of the air
Wants nothing less than our destruction
Pain beyond compare

The Sovereign has decreed that we enjoy each other's lives
We must refuse to just sit back and watch the romance die
The Sovereign has decreed that we enjoy each other's lives
We must refuse to just sit back and watch the romance die
