If give me your ear I'll whisper you wind that could soothe your burnt blood The door is right here Breathing the air filled with powders and porn Now comes the dawn If I release the dove Would it betray the sky and return to your cage In the river above Can I fold back the pages and just take one look Into your jungle book Refrain: some say it's a lie, some say it's a sin Do you know how it ends if you won't let it begin? You feel it waking now beneath your skin You can't live without the beast within If you lift up your veil Then I'll finish the features that aren't quite done How could we fail With all the miraculous masks that we wear In shadows and stares Let's seal out the dare Your eyes like morning, naked and wet What price will we pay? Now think back and tell me how we ever got here Such tender years Some say it's a lie, some say it's a sin . . .
