I heard the clock strike 13 times,
He demands i face his brocade and rhyme,
Heed the shadow line
From scattered bones she demands i choose,
Self sacrifice each way when heads they win,
And tails i lose

You wish to see me fall the icarus fall,
Aphelion, aphelion
So i travel fast from the dominion done,
To the furthest point from the sun
Aphelion, to the aphelion

Our carousel turns ever more,
The gilt has worn but it still enchants, like it did before
Disgraced in eden so like eve i fled,
The choice was mine to make,
And i followed where my passion led

You wish to see me fall the icarus fall,
Aphelion, aphelion
So i travel fast from the dominion done,
To the furthest point from the sun
Aphelion, to the aphelion

Still beats the heart, go wish another dead
Save your shallow words for someone who cares
I don’t believe in you anymore
Still beats the heart, go wish another dead
Save your shallow words for someone who cares
I don’t believe in you anymore

I heard the clock strike 13 times,
The time had come to leave the craven kind,
Cross the shadow line
The ash has scattered from the funeral pyre,
You sacrificed my faith, in the bitter flames of our final fire

You wish to see me fall the icarus fall,
Aphelion, aphelion
So i travel fast from the dominion done,
To the furthest point from the sun
Aphelion, to the aphelion
