A Poetic Retelling of an Unfortunate Seduction  Bright Eyes

[Bm]The language in the d[Am]immer rooms
[F]Seems to represent the light source [Am]well
[Bm]How soft they speak and see[Am]m to be at peace
[F]With the movement of the music and the ma[Am]dness
[F]That is pulling me into[Bm] this[G]
[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
And you watch them take the light from you
[Bm]And you find yourself
[Am]On a velvet couch
[F]Tasting the skin of a [Bm]foreign girl
[Bm]Her eyes are black
[Am]And wet like oil
[F]And she ties your hands with a stri[Bm]ng 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
[am]She might let you out to [G]fly
[F]In the circles aroun[am]d the room
But it's always night
[am]And there is [bm]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
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
