Over Her Shoulder

She was looking over her shoulder
I'll always wonder why
After all the things that I told her
About the killing sky

Pillar of strength
Salt of the earth
Framed in the city lights of hell
She took a mirror from her purse
And froze there in the fire that fell

Scorched earth fingers tap on my shoulder
She's my fatal wound
She floats above a world that can't hold her
Now she's a blood red moon

Bridge:
Flesh of my flesh, dust of my dust
Held in a swoon of sweet desire
I could not wake her from the lust
For everything that fed the fire

And now i'm looking over my shoulder
I don't know why
After all the things that I told her
About the killing sky
