    I'm clicking your fingers for a gothic twilight
    That actually existed just in your head
    Your fingernails painted black
    Or bloodred
    I forget

    And your fake-leather volumes
    Jabbering on hell
    Manifest decadence was what you hoped to exhail
    Your eyes tried so hard to glitter

    A star-snuffing black
    So you opened your books
    And you opened your legs
    And so opened your heart
    And let in the badness
    You claimed
    As your friend
    With un-angels hovering
    Like flies round the orchard
    That had covered your soul
    Their empire increasing
    And your country
    Deserted by yourself

    The bells of St. Mary call us to remember
    That life is with end
    And the gestures can kill us
    Moreover destroy
    And there is one judgment only

    Your letters came daily
    In French or in German
    But they meant to me nothing
    I caught the slow cords
    And dry ice fogging your mind
    I see all too clearly now
    Why you could be discarded
    And though I could pray for you
    I probably shan't
    Having had my cup filled up
    With your lies
    And your makeup
    You were nothing
    Thinking you're something

    And nonetheless I still write this gothic lovesong
    A sign to myself
    And the memory of my past
    I still write this gothic lovesong
    A sign to myself
    And the memory of my past

    And a way to shut out your face
