Black Rose
(T. Downing/C. Palmer)

Everything is fine tonight
All that’s in my mind tonight

A holy cause and hunger for tonight
An aching heart and furrowed brow
Please let me kill the sacred cow tonight


And in the death, you and I are one
Blood rains down and water hides the sun
An aching heart and furrowed brow
Please let me kill the sacred cow tonight



from Circe, released August 15, 1990
