Simple enough, I'm exhausted
Terrible noise, vibrations
Vision is black, tormented days
Trembling hands of shallow dirt

Seems so long, the devils are strong
The burden is bigger everyday
Oh, roses and poison
Drunken desire now and long lost for you
In the meadows of nightmares
Oh, roses and poison

Fire deep, the throat to sever the skin
I'm drowning myself into another drop of despair
Cripples my heart, tears it apart, I'm not giving up
Of dancing in the meadows of paradise
My words come filled with doom in this candle light
Now the cup is out of my sight
Gone into the far and darkened gloom
I dream for evermore felling the loneliness of Lenore

Teach me dear raven, where the sun doesn't burn
So I can finally dream of a poison that will return
Oh help me gentle wine to last one more night
This heart is not mine, guide me back to light

Simple enough, I'm exhausted
Terrible noise, vibrations
Vision is black, tormented days
Trembling hands of shallow dirt

Seems so long, the devils are strong
The burden is bigger everyday
Oh, roses and poison
Drunken desire now and long lost for you
In the meadows of nightmares
Oh, roses and poison

Teach me dear raven, where the sun doesn't burn
So I can finally dream of a poison that will return
Oh help me gentle wine to last one more night
This heart is not mine, guide me back to light

Keep this bottle laid before me, chanting ambary melodies
Of times that will never ever come
Another drop of green luxury
I'm drowning myself in laudanum and mercury
How can I regret the life I've sold
This winter day is so cold
I may dream for evermore
For a glance of the lost Lenore
