Lyric "You Lost My Memory"

Unstoppable forces and immovable objects
Repel one another when by chance colliding
The Brownian motion within this love potion
Ensures our opinions are always dividing
I am from Mars my dear, you hail from Venus
A meeting star-crossed like the Sun and the Moon
Destined to let this cruel world come between us
Our last kiss eclipsed by a shadow at noon

A rose that is built out of music by moonlight
Petals stained ruby with nightingale blood
Cast down in disgust to be crushed by a cartwheel
Because of mere trivia misunderstood
We quest for a grail of illusive perfection
Each hoping we'll find it some glorious day
Yet gaze with remorse at our jaded reflection
That looks like The Picture Of Dorian Gray

Siamese Twins who were joined at the heart
Love's an affliction without known remedy
Blunt-bladed fate deemed to cleave us apart
Emotional surgery pays no indemnity
Some seek release with effete anesthesia
Others adapt to the role of sworn enemy
You found nepenthe in cheap, sweet amnesia
It was far easier losing my memory

You lost my memory

[And the nightingale sang:]
"Sing love's lament with a thorn at your breast
Impaled by her barb
Cruel and unforgiving
A million dead poets would gladly attest
Heart-ache's a keepsake
To remind us we're living"

Siamese Twins who were joined at the heart
Love's an affliction without known remedy
Blunt-bladed fate deemed to cleave us apart
Emotional surgery pays no indemnity
Some seek release with effete anesthesia
Others adapt to the role of sworn enemy
You found nepenthe in cheap, sweet amnesia
It was far easier losing my memory

Skyclad

Skyclad are a British heavy metal band with heavy folk influences in their music. They are considered one of the pioneers of folk metal. The etymology behind the term "skyclad" comes from a pagan/wiccan term for ritual nudity, in which rituals are performed with the participants metaphorically clad only by the sky, as a sign of equality. The name alludes both to the band's religious leanings and to their social beliefs, as set out in the song "Skyclad" on their first album.
