I Sleep With The Emperor

This song is by Virgin Black and appears on the album Sombre Romantic (2001).

I shivered
In the warmth of their god
Yet this mansion
Is haunted by romance
His servants heal my scars
Anointing me with oil
I am naked and silk on this eve
His body will cradle his bride's
In frailty as I await his kiss
Mortality ebbs from me
The pendulum sings
Twelve times it rings
I sleep with the emperor
