Wedding feast sits on the table, bridal flowers perfuming the air

All together, we celebrate life, joy and laughter ringing through the hall

Into town there rides a stranger, pale of flesh, just skin and bone

Callous faces turn towards him, cruel eyes gleam his despair

He reaches out for a hand to hold, skin hunger, making him bold

Backs turned, faces averted, alone he stands hope abandons all plans

Silent distain meets his desperation, seeking contact, aching approval

One last gesture seeking friendship, one last chance for abrogation

Dark desire, silent bier, twisted briar, pain is gone

Eternity stretches, sorrow fetches, poor wretches, nightmare song

In celebration, dancing, loud and prancing, noone notices his hand.
Outstretched reaching for the
Bride's sweet waist in
shock he clasps her flesh to his

Husband stepping back in fear, bride's ashen face filled with pain

Eyes meeting, bones creaking
Their love giving, they dance close
Surrounded by, the living
Death takes bride, their last waltz
Humanity resile, as dead arise
Breathe darkness, dull the light
As they touch, sparks collide
They pirouette, dark world laud

They dance in splendour fast and delicate
As they spin she begins to change

Flesh and youth turn to bone and wither
She laughs and twirls beneath a gibbous moon

The party scatters, fear and horror
As death and his bride take their leave

Groom caresses with bony fingers
Marching figures in their wake
Her love cries for loss to grieve

His powers empty every coffin
Dead now do their graves forsake

Dark horse whinnies as they ride
