lyrics

I have never seen your kingdom 
yet I crave your crown 
there's a ghost inside the abbey 
haunting the saints in me 
I am dethroned from my palace 
as you turn your gaze from me 
and since we're being honest
I really don't feel worthy 

its just like any other day I guess 
but today I have crowned myself as the 
King of the Lepers 

I am told there is no Kingdom 
outside of myself 
yet I just keep reappearing 
in my mind of you 

thunder moves in through the cloister 
as my torch goes out 
and in the darkness there's a whisper: 
"do not search without” 
never really did find our bottom 
my mouth drips with poison 
wet insect dreams 
'could you love me"
