I see your dancing laughing naked
Sweet and pretty face
And the promise burning brightly
In your crystal-shot eyes
Your savage and violent flesh
The cut that bleeds
The kiss that stings
We're shooting up stars and desperate snows
That fall from shimmering skies

So take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
Take my hand and lead me
To the Garden
Of Delight

Revelation is laid and reflects
On the windswept liquid mirror
Of this breathless world
This Happy Death
This elegance in charm
The treasured and precious
First fleeting touch of a gracious stranger
Encharmed me and entranced me
I know you can do me no harm

So take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
So take my hand and lead me
To the Garden
Of Delight

We're playing with fire
Dancing in the flames
And we're covered in burns that may never heal
And angels may come
And angels may go
But it's heaven on earth

When you take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
Just take my hand and lead me
To the Garden
Of Delight

Just take my hand and lead me
To the Garden of Delight
Just take my hand and lead me
To the Garden
