  • Lyrics: Where the icy waters flow Where the darkness is a glove Clutching at your beating heart Extinguishing this tattered love I can feel it, pulsing like a vein Burning through my weary heart Thought I heard you Your voice like liquid gold Emanating from the dark When the blood no longer boils When the lesson has been learned Like a cobra when it coils Like a child that has been spurned I’ll be waiting in the corridor Where the candles do not burn Distant thunder, lightning streaks the sky And you never will return Chorus: Where the icy waters flow Where the icy waters flow Seven hours before the dawn Seven lies between us two In the ice storm of your eyes Seven secrets in plain view What doesn’t kill you, just makes you want to die, What is this hell you put me through? Some men come here by their own design Sacrifice their lives for you Wicked mongrels in the hall Spiders scatter in the dust And the echoes from last fall Of our shameless wanton lust Do we change or, do we just get old As we spiral into space? Moving forward, never looking back On this past we can’t erase Chorus When the monuments burn down Crashing into the abyss When the carillon bells wake The sleeping dragons in the mist All the idols you worshiped ‘neath the stars Where the snakes and scarecrows dwell Fall before you in scattered disarray Dashed and broken is the spell In a distant mountain lake Swims a fish with amber scales The locals say it can’t be caught All who’ve tried have always failed But they’ll keep trying, till the earth expires On that you can rely Cast their lines out, say a silent prayer Gazing blindly at the sky Chorus In the courtyard there’s a man With a cowl over his face When the western wind blows in Only you’ll know his disgrace If he asks you, just tell him I’m not here Tell him that I’m still in Spain And when he takes you, I really do not care I only hope you feel no pain Chorus x 2
