inspired by the eponymous novel by Yukio Mishima.


She knows what I have to lose
To keep the flame
I know the sun must rise
To break these clouds
At dawn atop the sacred hill
I bow my head and make my will
Write my name in red upon the ground

And I
I would run away with you
If I could only see it through
I would run away
Run away with you

I raise my head up to on high
and cut below
The arrows of the light
Pierce through my eyes
A temple of the golden sky
Flame upon the funeral pyre
Stampede as the horses
Bolt back to the wild
