Abraxas

Faust emerges from the black twilight, dangerously toiling
His footsteps imprinting Abraxas stones, and his eyes
Darting wildly about the horizon, he will suffer any ill to get to her,
She, the ghost-devil squatting nude by the river bank

His footsteps imprinting Abraxas stones, and his eyes
Covet the sight of her, he uses them as charms to entice, to beckon her
She, the ghost-devil squatting nude by the river bank
She with her pact of eternal youth, eternal gratification, she with her hunger,

Covet the sight of her, he uses them as charms to entice, to beckon her
And when the debt is signed a thousand haunted maids are laid at his feet
She with her pact of eternal youth, eternal gratification, she with her hunger,
Watches the shadow of her charge, broken backs of lovers forged together like tree roots

And when the debt is signed a thousand haunted maids are laid at his feet,
She watches when he first touches Marguerite, watches his hands stay forged to her
Watches the shadow of her charge, broken backs of lovers forged together like tree roots
Faust tears the pact asunder, takes Marguerite in his hands, he will not let go of her.

She watches when he first touches Marguerite, watches his hands stay forged to her
The ghost-devil moves her mouth across the frozen land
Faust tears the pact asunder, takes Marguerite in his hands, he will not let go of her.
His heart beat lies in the pages of his promise, the pact written in his blood.

The ghost-devil moves her mouth across the frozen land
Darting wildly about the horizon, he will suffer any ill to get to her,
His heart beat lies in the pages of his promise, the pact written in his blood.
Faust emerges from the black twilight, dangerously toiling.
