Creatures — Ice House lyrics

The ice house preserves
With incestuous flowers
Their nightly perfume overpowers me
The stamens kiss
Entwined devouring
The heart will melt whilst the ice remains

Erogenous touch -- of brother and sister
The ice retains life -- no offspring to bear
Phallic flower etched into my memory
A feline form on a frosty pane

Not ashes to ashes
Not dust to dust
A beckoning bouquet
Of blossoming lust

Oh will you stay -- until this moment's complete?
Oh let me freeze you -- with this fragrance so sweet
We shall not slither and wither away
The door will lock shut -- when the ice names the day
