Lyrics[edit | edit source]

William Patrick Corgan version

stand in the ring of a shadow
wishing i was far away
bathe me in
the waters of hope
so that i may be here again

so i stood on top of your mountain
looking down through your eyes
i feel in
a million miles down
into the waters of your heart

because i desire
to stand free
clear my name
of blasphemy
until all the dead dogs go home

The Marked version (guesswork)

i'll never ring of shadow
wishing i was far away

here he is
but what am i supposed to
ring of shadow
make you dear
look out
