Lyrics

Bound to be Bound (Chuck Hawthorne)

I see the edge before me
Like the curve of a woman’s breast
And I can’t seem to fight the urge to leap

All her Angels swarm around me
Like hornets from a nest
That I shook with my bare hand to greet

All their poison loyalty
Every wing and every crest
Stand ready for revolution to defeat

All my Angels warn me
Guess they figure that it’s best
That I step not into the darkness that I seek

Over the edge
I’m falling down
Like the venom
From her anointed crown

Over the edge
Am I flying free
Or am I bound
To be bound?

So I kill the Angels slowly
Ripping wings from every chest
Feel the sting from their final act of lust

They die each one lonely
All falling to the west
Where her sun burns their bodies into dust

Their venom may have stoned me
But I gave them all my best
For I’ve sworn their queen I will make just

I’ve vowed no thing will own me
But the fury of my quest
I race towards the edge lance and thrust

Over the edge
I’m falling down
With every wing
I’ve cast upon the ground

Over the edge
Am I flying free
Or am I bound
To be bound?

So here she lay before me
The object of my ravage
I know with her death we will take flight

But I find the Queen is holy
And she gives me all her courage
As she brings me to her breast in the night

She cuts my back and tells me
Fresh wounds are free of bondage
And wings are the Angel’s way to fight

I feel my wings are growing
On my back so I step onward
But it’s blacker than the blood on her knife

Over the edge
I’m falling down
Like sweet honey
Dripping from her mound

Over the edge
Am I flying free
Or am I bound
To be bound?

Over the edge
I’m falling down
With every wing
With every crown

Over the edge
I’m flying free
I am bound
To be bound
