Queensryche - Suite Sister Mary lyrics

Dr. X:
"Kill her. That's all you have to do."
Nikki:
"Kill Mary?"
Dr. X:
"She's a risk, and get the priest as well."

10 P.M., I feel the rain coming down
My face feels the wet, my mind the storm
Flashing lights as people race to find shelter from the pour
Moving silent through the streets, they're mine, they're mine

Midnight, she sings praises in the hall
To saintly faces, hallowed be their names, she can't recall
Sister Mary, virgin Mary, silent with her sin
Mary:
"What are you doing out in the rain?"
She feels me, I can taste her breath when she speaks
Mary:
"I've been waiting for you. Come in."

Mary, Mary just a whore for the underground
They made you pay in guilt for your salvation
Thought you had them fooled? Now they've sent me for you
You know too much for your own good

Don't offer me faith, I've got all I need here
My faith is growing, growing tight against the seam
What we need is trust to keep us both alive
Help us make it through the night

Mary:
I've no more want of any faith
Binds my arm and feed my mind
The only peace I've ever known
I'll close my eyes, you shoot

No Mary, listen, you've got to pull your strength
From my lips, I pray I feed you well
Your precious cross is gone, it made me wait so long
For what you gave to everyone

The priest is cold and dead on his knees he fed
From my barrel of death, he turned
The Holy water red, as he died he said
"Thank you." I just watched him bleed

Mary:
I feel the flow, the blessed stain
Sweating hands like fire, and flames
Burn my thighs, spread in sacrificial rite
The hallowed altar burns my flesh once more tonight

Mary, my lady of pain, always alone
Blind you search for the truth
I see myself in you, parallel lives
Winding at light-speed through time

No time to rest yet, we've got to stop his game
Before madness has the final laugh
Too much bloodshed, we're being used and fed
Like rats in experiments

No final outcome here, only pain and fear
It's followed us both all our lives
There's one thing left to see
Will it be him or me?
There's one more candle left to light

Mary:
Don't turn your back on my disgrace
The blood of Christ can't heal my wounds... so deep
The sins of man are all I taste
Can't spit the memory from my mind
I can't cry anymore

Mary, my lady of pain, always alone
Blind you search for the truth
I see myself in you, parallel lives
Winding at light-speed through time
You're mine
