Uncertainty


Hades wove black widows and narcissus in my hair with unusual brevity
Your faithfulness is faithlessness in the end of our duet
I'm waiting for you to walk off the precipice and fall into anonymity

Years left undone: the circumstances call for a certain sad levity
But familiarness is foolishness, so I must not forget!
Hades wove black widows and narcissus in my hair with unusual brevity

Even though I don't wish to bow before the situation's sovereignty
Our fearlessness hides only a fearfulness I will always regret--
I'm waiting for you to walk off the precipice and fall into anonymity

Me, me, me: self-absorption is a damaging kind of vanity
Gracefulness is gracelessness designed to look preset
Hades wove black widows and narcissus in my hair with unusual brevity

The stars within you are led far astray by an irresistible gravity
A cure for lovelessness is lustfulness: the galaxy is your nymphet!
I'm waiting for you to walk off the precipice and fall into anonymity

All the world but me's convinced this eventuality to be verity
My hopefulness is hopelessness, maybe I can keep you yet--
Hades wove black widows and narcissus in my hair with unusual brevity
I'm waiting for you to walk off the precipice and fall into anonymity
