The Burning Ladder
One of the rare love songs of Ritual Tension. Listen to it on youtube.
Readin' the road like parchment, reading signs
I gotta feel under skin, something movin'.
I come across her on a curve, disappearin'.
Bare shoulder, stone sepulchre, instant healing.
Yeah we live half a million years until we know
That it will never change.
They'll cut you up in pieces, laughing jackals.
The jumpin' demon's laughter, bitter shackles.
They put the curse under skin and leave it burnin' there.
I gotta fly out of my skin through the burnin' air.
This road to heave passes through a land of plagues.
My lover leads me to her heart in the next world.
