I ascend upon the lightning
To a plane of holy bliss
The perfection of your kiss
I settle down in heaven
My calling now fulfilled
A cage of golden gild

I shall imagine that my quest is complete
And tell myself that I perceive no deceit

A priestess and her angel, wrists bound with skeins of faith
You tell me "We're in paradise, and here you will be safe."
How I wish I could believe you - how I wish that it were so
But the gloom of heaven's alleys hides a stalker whom I know

The demon will not leave me
Persistent enemy
My stalking destiny
His whisper is a warning:
Betrayal and intrigue
My blindness under siege

Yet still I go about my holy routine
And never think to ask my angel where he's been

A sound within your sanctum
No answer when I call
Her shadow on the wall
Entangled in her gambit
The mantis' sweet embrace
Revealing my disgrace

For now I know that I was blind not to see:
Although I chose my angel he did not choose me

How I wish I could believe you, but I know my destiny:
From the gloom of heaven's alleys the seducer beckons me.
In the gloom of heaven's alleys my defiler waits for me.
