A Poetic Retelling Of An Unfortunate Seduction

Bright Eyes

 BmAm
            The language in the dimmer rooms
 FAm
            Seems to represent the light source well
 BmAm
            How soft they speak and seem to be at peace
 FAm
            With the movement of the music and the madness
 FBmG
            That is pulling me into this       
 F
            And the shades of the lamps are woven red
 Am
            The light, it stains and consecrates
 Bm
            Anointing all forgotten forms
 G
            That swirl and smoke and haunt this place
 F
            The girls in gowns all nurse the dark
 Am
            Pulling it near to their swelling breasts
 Bm
            And watch as it seeps to their hearts
 G
            And beats within their virgin chests
And here I know seduction breeds same all
throght here
From wanton hearts that would seduce just
follow the pattern
And grows and spreads its vine and leaves
Embracing those who might have moved
But now remain to drink the night
From vials black and thick with steam
Such intoxicating delights
That leave you drunk inside this dream
F,Am,G,Bm
And you watch them take the light from you
 Bm
            And you find yourself
 Am
            On a velvet couch
 FBm
            Tasting the skin of a foreign girl
 Bm
            Her eyes are black
 Am
            And wet like oil
 FBm
            And she ties your hands with a string of pearls
 Bm
            And you tremble like a frightened bird
 Am
            As she closes in and captures you
 F
            To place you in the silver cage
 G
            Deep within her poisoned womb
 Bm
            And once you're safe inside
 amG
            She might let you out to fly
 Fam
In the circles around the room
f
But it's always night
 ambm
            And there is no moon
f am g bm
And you wonder if you are alive
f am g bm
And you're not sure if you want to be
f am g bm
But you drank her sweat like it was wine
f
And you lay with her on a bed of blue
 am
            And it's awful sweet
g bm
Like the fruit she cuts and feeds to you
f am bm to you f am
