Sister walk through these fields of delight I want you to know Desperation's the tenderest trap So gently you go What will it take Sister awake Sister, sister When this beautiful cult of desire Has left you for dead Isolation will cradle the lies Of things left unsaid What will it take Sister awake Sister, sister And you'll look to the heaven's above And taste it's deceit These tempations have blinded desires To sleep at their feet What will it take Sister awake Sister, sister, sister, sister
