Iscariot
T. Rex Lyrics


A box of doves
I placed beside your chest
Liar, a stork of silk
With rubies in it's nest

Fire of my love
Will burn thee
To a wizened word
For ere to go unheard
A mare of wood
Elder, elm and oak
Liar, will keep you fair
If you jest me, no joke

Fire of my love
Will burn thee
To a wizened word
For ere to go unheard

I'm old and bruised
But my fate is that of youth
Liar, trickster you
Be a grisly dragon's tooth

Fire of my love
Will burn thee
To a wizened word
For ere to go unheard

You gashed the heart of my heart
Like a Portuguese witch
I'd planned for you this land
But you devoured my hand

That brings back memories of the 70's all good, just wish I got to see Marc in concert!

This sounds great as is it doesn't need anything else added it is spot on it touches every fibre of my being!

Bo Dylan

Low-key best tyrannosaurus song, Marc should've used that money from Rumbling spires to add strings, a quiet but bold upright bass leading through..
