Hercules & Love Affair – Gates Of Separation Lyrics

Mother, march with me by my side
For I am truly petrified
Those gates we see, they clearly mean
Separation
Mother, hand me those weapons
To ward off the night
The cretins that follow
That you taught me to fight
They’re no longer illusions
They’re flesh and blood
I hear their footsteps as they come
Intertwined
Let our fingers linger
For the child I am

And so I turn to you, mother
I extend my hand
Peace be with you
Your little lamb

The are windows in the slaughterhouse
The are windows in the slaughterhouse
Remember to just look outside
Remember to just look outside

Mother I don’t recognize the clothes we wear
Only the star that they bear
My feet are heavy, they don’t seem my own
But I trust you mother that we’re going home
How I grasp your hand, hold it tighter than ever
Like the child I am

And so I turn to you, mother
I extend my hand
Peace be with you
Your little lamb

The are windows in the slaughterhouse
The are windows in the slaughterhouse
Remember to just look outside
Remember to just look outside
